House Mouse Christmas Card

This is a House Mouse card I made for my aunt and uncle.  I had 20+ years when they were not in my lives and now I only have to go a couple of days before we speak.  I have used various House Mouse images that have been decoupaged.
On the first page and third page I designed a backing paper myself using various See D's stamps.  I love these and would love to have as I find them so useful.  The other papers are from my stash.  The image on the front page and the sentiment on the third page has been mounted onto a 6x6 embossed frame.  I have used a holly die to make the holly embellishments.  The front page has been finished off with some ribbon, pearls, large poinsettia flowers, sentiment off the computer, metal sentiment and some gingham bows.
On the second page the page has been adorned with some 3D baubles and a Christmas tree.  The third page has been finished off with some Marianne Designs Creatables corners, Hunkydory sentiment which I got for Christmas last year, holly, pearls and a little metal gingerbread man.
The final page of this 8x8 card has been finished off with a Marianne Designs Creatables corner die, holly, pearls and sentiment off the House Mouse decoupage sheet.
