Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - December 2014 - Anything goes or the option of blue and silver

Today it is time for me to show you my last card of the year for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  The topic for December is "anything goes with the option blue and silver".
Here is a Christmas card that I have made using the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple CD.  I love this image with the penguins looking after the mouse.  I have used a topper sheet and two sheets of backing paper to make the card.

On the topper sheet there is one large image I have used on the front of the card, two smaller images I have used on the inside and the back, a tag used on the front, a sentiment used on the front of the card and two tiny little snippet toppers used on the front.  How is that for value for money from topper sheet?

I have finished the card off with pearls, silver fibres, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, Stickles glitter glue, 10mm double-sided satin ribbon and 25mm white organza ribbon.

I am entering this Christmas card into the following challenges:
