One Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge this is a "Shape Card" and for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, this one is for "Celebration". And Ive used this cute little image of Savannah and her baby chicks for a card for one of our small granddaughters,  and for the shape card Ive created a Egg shape, not easy but hopefully it will pass muster.
Ive printed my image onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then punched her out with my circle Nestabilitie dies, and for the mount Ive used a scalloped edged one. Ive also done the same thing with the sentiment, and used a yellow card to mount both onto with some foam tape.
The card was created out of white card, and the paper I have used is one from the Spring Time pad by Papermania. This was shaped by drawing the same egg shape and then cutting it a little bit smaller to mount on more of the same yellow card.
Before sticking it to my base card, Ive wrapped two ribbons around the middle and fixed them to them back then stuck this on to the card. The mounted image was stuck in the cenre and my sentiment at the bottom. Ive then created a small bouquet of flowers by using three daffodils, a few punched out leaves and a yellow bow beneath, these were stuck at the top on the right hand side.
