A Card for the Teddy Bo - "Shaped Card"

Good Morning Everyone, hope that you are enjoying the warmer weather, the sun is out but its still a bit cloudy here in Gloucestershire, but Im keeping my fingers crossed that my washing will dry and smell nice. Hubby has just left for four days to visit his daughters, granddaughters and stepson, so Im sure he will be busy driving from one to another and enjoying the time spent with them all. And I shall be busy getting my scheduling done ready for next week, its another 3 challenge blogs week so need a bit of time to myself to sort it all out. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Teddy Bo "Shaped Card" Challenge, and I love these characters they are so cute and so life like in their antics, as you know Im a Teddy mad collector and have quite a lot of special collector ones so these are just right for me, and the fact that a very dear friend of mine in Guernsey has just had a baby boy and Im so thrilled for her, shes waited along time for this though wether shes feeling very fit at the moment is another story, we all know what a first baby is like to live with I think tiredness is the biggest problem.
Anyway Ive printed this cute image onto with card then used my copics and tira pens to colour it, then used my Go Create #5 Frilly Square to cut it out, and then used a large die to create a shaped card, I then put a mount of blue pearlescent card with one of the Nana's Kitchen Baby Boy papers and wrapped a blue seam binding ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of this mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle, then created a triple bow with some more seam binding ribbon and popped a Whimsey Ticket behind in when sticking it to my card.
Well I want to wish you all a fabulous weekend if the weather forcast is anything to go by it should be hot.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
