House Mouse - What is it?

Back again. In fear of losing my title, House Mouse Queen, (chuckle at Jean), I finished a card this afternoon for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. The criteria was tall and thin. Well I've turned my card around, so I hope that still passes.
My aim was to make the card look like a parcel to match the present on the stamped image. So I wrapped the ribbon around the cardstock as if I was wrapping a parcel and tied a bow. The ribbon is double sided, red and green, just gorgeous.

My Martha Stewart branch punch came into play again as well as my SU photo corners punch.
The designer paper and matching brads are from the Kaisercraft Deck the Halls paper range.
I'm really happy with the way it all came together. What do you think?
Stamps - House Mouse What is it?, Hero Arts greeting
Ink - Stazon timber brown, Colourbox fluid chalk olive pastel
Cardstock - Bazzill, Kaisercraft Deck the Halls
Accessories - Kaisercraft flowers, Deck the Halls brads, SU photo corners, large and small tag punches, Martha Stewart branch punch, double sided red, green ribbon, red bling, prisma coloured pencils.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, Leigh - this is wonderful and I love how you did make the card look like the present located in the stamp. You and Jean both do such awesome jobs with the House Mouse stamps - I really need to start using them. I may have to make a request via the SCS Group #7 image swap :) so be on the lookout.
