Let's bake a cake!

I make a card for a lady every year for her granddaughter who just loves science. Last year I made her a little science lab girl so this year I went for the science of baking. I used this lovely cake image which I printed out large enough to cover my housemouse image underneath. I sparkled it up and added a big bow. The papers are digi and I added some mouse prints. The text was added to the paper via the printer.

I made a flap card on top of the main card to add this gorgeous 3d sheet of the housemouse baking and added a nice little cake poem I found on google. The image is 3d but not a great photo I'm afraid. I held back part of the sheet and used one of the little mice on the front as well.
This hopefully suits the following challenges:
1. Housemouse Challenge - sweet
2. Totallypapercrafts - more than one fold(hope my flap card counts)
3. Stampin Sisters in Christ - an animal of some kind
4. Pollycraft Monday - ribbon and bling
