House Mouse Mother's Day Card

Here is an 8x8 Mother's Day card I've made using the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Project Book.  This is my second Mother's Day without my mum and I thought making Mother's Day cards would be easier but it isn't.  I have decoupaged the image that was one the CD.
I decided not to use a backing paper off the CD but instead used a perfect match from the Bearly Mine Designs Patchwork Party Digi Set.  I used my Kanban ruler stamp and used a blue Memento ink pad and stamped the ruler onto the same blue card used for the card.  I used a Crafty Ann's cotton reel and coloured it with my Promarkers and then wound embroidery thread around it.  I then poked three holes in the reel so I could poke in three yellow pins.  I have finished the card off with a Marianne Designs die-cut, peel-off, wide lace, ribbon bow and lots and lots of buttons.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
