Sugar Bowl Challenge 2 - Three

Sorry if this turns out to be a long post and please excuse my photography location but it is best light in the house in the evenings ;-)
The challenge this week was to use 3 different papers and 3 different embellishments. If you managed to use 3 Sugar Nellie stamps that you get entered into the draw twice.
I have put 5 Leanne Ellis images on my card but only 3 different images. I have used a mini book template which is basically 3 squares folded and stuck together. I have used 5 different papers all from the Butterflies and Floral paper stack from DCWV and have used ribbon, blossoms, gems and brads as my embellishments. There are various other stamped images and greetings. So I have met all the criteria but the difficult bit was to photograph it.
This is it closed and tied: A closer picture of the front of the card:

And it unfolds: And a bit more:
