Name Plaque

I made this name plaque for my niece, can you guess her name?
She loves Mini Mouse, I much prefer Donald Duck!!!
The end result looks very vintagey, is that a word? Poppy loved it and is putting it on her wall when her bedroom has been decorated.
I used my cricut to cut out Mini Mouse and the letters, punches for the flowers, recycled tissue paper, stickles, distress ink, gilding flakes, glossy accents and varnish.
 I started off with a blank bit of MDF, my fantastic hubby found these at work, they were going to be thrown out so thinking of me he brought them home, aren't I lucky? I sanded it down and covered it with cream acrylic paint.
I added gilding flakes around the four edges, not sure what colour they are but they had different gold tones in them.
I then attached torn spotted tissue paper to the front. On the back I put cream card stock.
I added Mini Mouse, Poppy's name and the flowers I had made, Mini Mouse has black stickles on her nose, tail and outlining her ears. I filled the bow in with glossy accents then added stardust stickles to the flower centres.
To finish off I added a brown distress ink to certain parts of the plaque front, then thinly varnished the whole thing.
I am so pleased with the end result, but I did run out of time to make Poppy a birthday card, so I wrote on the back of this lol!!!
