Cake Competition Card

My son has been asked to organise a cake competition for work for tomorrow.  he's been busy in the kitchen making his cake and he's now tired because he's had all the washing-up to do as well!!!  I thought it would be nice to give a prize and make a card.
I have used a House Mouse image from Joanna Sheen called Spring.  One naughty little mouse has fallen in the chocolate dip and got covered.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted the glass jar with Glossy Accents.  The backing papers are from my stash.  The card is finished off with a handmade flower (various layers cut out of a book with my Tim Holtz floral die and coloured with various shades of red Promarkers, scrunched up and held together with a flower brad (which I've had since I first started making cards)), ribbon, die-cut sentiment, pearls, congratulations die-cut for the inside of the card and some die-cut cooking chipboard shapes I was given.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crazy Challenge - Ribbons 
Passion for Promarkers - Animal crackers
Anything Goes - Pick of the bunch
Clear it Out - Anything goes
Creative Card Crew - Animal antics
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes
