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

Good Morning Girls, sorry Ive not been by for a couple of days as you know Ive been waiting for a new monitor which arrived yesterday and its brilliant, and the smell from the old one was a bit much. Anyway todays card has been created for Mo's Challenge "Beach/Summer Scene and Cute Card Thursdays "Schools out for the Summer" and Ive used this lovely little lad of Mo's relaxing with his dog in a paddling pool, I could have done with one of those the other week when it was so hot.
Ive printed him onto white card and coloured his with my copic pens, after which I used my Nestabilitie Label die eight to cut him out and with the die I drew around it on a piece of blue card for the mount. The sentiment is one of Just Magnolia's one and Ive done the same thing with this as I did my image.
The card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller downloads, this first pattern is an all over fish design on white in pink green and blue, my second paper is a yellow textured paper that Ive cut into a 5"x 5" square and used my beach corner and border punches from Martha Stewart, the third mount is a corner one with a striped paper on another piece of blue card. After Id layered up the base card I put my mounted image in the centre with my sentiment to the right hand side at the bottom. To finish of Ive popped three buttons down the left hand side.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:-
