Special House Mouse Card

I posted my tag last week that I made to go along with my aunt's House Mouse birthday card and it's time for the card itself as it is all finished, posted and hopefully in London now.
I decided to make a concertina card with the pages being 8x8 and it has four sides on each as I couldn't decide what yummy House Mouse decoupage to leave out that I had.  I have used lots of backing papers/card I've had for some time including some from Redhotbed.  All the images have been lovingly cut out and decoupaged with Collall glue gel.  The card in its entirety has been finished off with flowers, twine, ribbon, gems, sentiments and brads.

Here are some close-up photos of these wonderful House Mouse images:
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Pretties - Punches and/or die-cuts
Cooking it up with Katie - 3 favourite things - decoupage (especially House Mouse decoupage), ribbon and flowers 
Papercrafting Journey - Make it cute

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Allsorts - It's your choice
2 Sisters - Anything goes

Joanna Sheen Monthly Challenge - Love is in the air - lots of love went into this card for my aunt (due to a family rift I didn't have contact with my aunt for 20+ years.  She's now back in my life and helping me through the difficult loss of my mum)
Crafter's Companion - Anything goes
Truly Madly Crafty - Ribbon and bling

Your card is so awesome and cute! First I thought, it must have taken hours to color the images, but than I realised, that those are decupage. What a great way to use it!
