Gruffies and Guests Challenge - November 2014 - Anything goes with the option of the month before Christmas

Two weeks ago saw the start of a new challenge at the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  The topic for November is "anything goes with the option of the month before Christmas".
Here is a Christmas card that I have made using the House Mouse Triple CD.  I love this image.  I have used a topper sheet and two sheets of backing paper to make the card.

On the topper sheet there are two large images the same size so I have managed to decoupage up a layer and it has two little "Peace on Earth" toppers and three little circle dove toppers (one used on the front of the card and two on the inside).

I have finished the card off with an X-cut die-cut border, a large tissue paper flower held together with a brad, some teal satin ribbon, crochet lace and some pearls (all of which are from Buckwell Craft Supplies).
Pop on over to the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog to see Team A's creations for this challenge and to enter your own cards/creations using a House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hoppers image.
