Special Christmas Card

I made a special House Mouse Christmas card for someone special.  The trouble was I couldn't work out which of the Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage images to include/exclude so I decided to use them all!!
I started off by getting my glue and sticking together a number of card blanks to make a book.
The backing papers were either ones I previously had or from the Joanna Sheen Christmas House Mouse Project Book.
Each page has been finished off with different embellishments.
These include Papermania stickers, die-cut sentiments, sentiments from the decoupage sheets, gems, peel-offs, card that I embossed and distressed, tags, handmade flowers and buttons tied with memory wire and ribbon.
Thankfully my card arrived safely and the recipient like it.  I have to say I was sad to see it go as they are such cute little characters.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
