Penny Black challenge 27

I made this card for today's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Use 3 flowers, 2 Papers and 1 Ribbon, and at least one Penny Black image.
I am not sure if the Papers were meant to be Designer Paper. I sure have tons of it, but somehow didn't think about it today. My 2 papers are Bashful Blue and Kiwi kiss. Since Black and White are neutrals they don't count, right?
Description: I stamped the cute mouse image on white twice, colored it once and cut it out. I colored 3 mice on the second image and cut them out too and adhered them to the first image with dimensionals. Glassy Glaze was added to the lady bugs. Stickles on the flowers and presents. I just got these new stickles the other day. Until now I just used diamond dust, but got a few colored ones. They are soooo addicting!!
Along the edges of the blue card stock I did some embossing. The flowers on the kiwi kiss card front are from SU's set Delight in Life. I added stickles to them as well. To finish the card off I added the sentiment, gingham ribbon and eyelets.

Stamps: mice surprise (PB), Riventing (SU) Delight in life (SU)
Paper: bashful blue, Kiwi kiss, basic black (all SU), GP white 110lb
ink: Kiwi kiss (SU), memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Blick, prisma and copic markers, stickles, glassy glaze, flower trio punch, spring bouquet punch, ribbon, eyelets

Thanks for looking.
