House Mouse Donut Transport

Hi everyone, I was so chuffed to win a prize on the last House Mouse Challenge that I couldn't wait to make another card. This fortnight the theme is 'Transport'. This little mouse is using a donut to roll along...

I used the House Mouse triple cd, also printing the matching backing paper. I found some contrasting card for the matting. I've used Sakura glitter pens to colour the 'sprinkles' on the donut to complement the spots on the ribbon. I've then chosen one of those colours to be the accent and added candi and a couple of mix and match paper flowers . The ribbon is actually a Boofle one and, luckily, I had a matching bow. Here are some close ups...

I've also decorated the inside to balance the card better as it was a little bit front heavy...
 I would like to enter this for the following:-
