House Mouse Challenge #95- May flowers

As I was merrily cruising the desks (and being jealous of all the nifty IKEA storage things) I came across a link to the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog.  Huzzah and thrice!  I have about 50 assorted House Mouse stamps that stay on the shelves (but they make me happy!  and they are so cute!) so "aha," I say and pull one off to meet this challenge.  And coincidentally enough, I needed a birthday card today so serendipity works her magic and off I go merrily stamping.  The card is based on a design by Cambria Turnbow and kindly posted on SCS by Beate Johns.  Mine is  larger than the original to fit the stamped image and flower.  Mine is 12" long scored at 4" and 8" and is 5-1/2" tall. 
Opened once

Opened out full length
I added 1" of coordinating card stock to the back right hand edge to keep the look of the original, but didn't do the closure the way she had, I just tied a ribbon all around.  Thanks for stopping by!
