Here Comes the Sun

Sometimes I wish I was a House Mouse, they always seem to be having such a good time!  This was one of the decoupage sheets I recently won, I just had to play with this one, it's so cute and it matches my new papers!  The yumtastic papers are Sun Kiss from Prima and are to die for.  This paper stack has had me, and quite a few of my crafty friends, swooning and drooling, stroking and sniffing!
Once the decoupage was done it was just a mat and layer job onto an 8x8 card blank, adding a punched border made with a Martha Stewart punch.
Some ribbon, a bow, Papermania flowers with Card Candi centres, a few gems and a couple of fussy cut butterflies provide the finishing touches.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Card Crew - song inspired, I was inspired by my favourite Beatles song "Here Comes the Sun"
Craftroom Challenge - four legged family
Creative Mondays - #9 - summer
House Mouse - here comes the sun
