A Card for Mo and Cute Card Thursday Challenges

Good Afternoon All, well its become cloudy again so I suppose we are in for some rain, I did manage to get out for about 30mins at 12noon when the sun was out, but by gum it was very windy and my poor daffodils are being battered to death. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Buttons and Bows" and Cute Card Thursday "Couples" Challenges, Ive used this sweet pair for my image from Mo itns called "Brady and Chloe" and Ive printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it before using the new Nestabilitie Die No.19 to cut it out afterwards using the same die to draw around and create the mount for it. The sentiment was one I created on the computer and printed it out onto white card and mounted it onto a piece of the same green card.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount with green pearlescent card and one of two papers from the First Edition"Hideaway" papers, a very pretty white base with spots of orange yellow and green with flowers in them, the second piece has been cut into a strip and Ive used a heart border punch from Martha Stewart along both edges, I then positioned it across the card and on top I have put a piece of threaded lace around and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then stuck my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I created a bow with some seam binding ribbon and stuck to the right of the mount, and the last thing I picked three buttons from my stash and threaded some bakers twist through the holes and tied bows with it, and then stuck two at the top on the left and one on top of the green binding bow.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
