PBSC August - Shaped Cards

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...the theme this month is:

'Shaped Cards'
(No Squares or Rectangles please)

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I made a little star shaped gatefold style card...and featured a little mouse from the 'Bubbly' stamp set. I cut three stars from red card using using the largest of my star Nesties...then a couple of smaller ones from white and green card. I stamped a sentiment on to the white star (from the 'Party Critters' set), then adhered it to one of the red stars. I scored and folded the other two red stars down their centres, and also on one of the tips, then added half of the green star to each. I coloured the wee mouse using watercolour pencils, then once I'd assembled the card, added him to the front using 3D foam pads.

It doesn't stand up when closed, but below you can see what it looks like:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
