Card for Mo's Challenge "Furry Friends"

Good Afternoon Everyone, wow what fabulous weather weve been having these last few days, my pup is enjoying it she will sleep in the sun then when she gets to hot she moves into the kitchen onto the lino to cool of, at the moment shes sleeping by the side of me on the settee. Shes been a bit accident prone these last couple of weeks she came back from her few days with the breeder with a limp and it turned out it was a bruised right front knee, then yesterday the daft dog went and hurt her back left leg jumping of the computer chair in my hubby room not sure what she did but she came into me limping on three legs, we are supposed to be resting her but how can you shes like a cat and will jump up on anything given a chance. Oh well will just have to keep my eyes open all the time. She certainly looks good in her new clipped coat which has been a godsend in this hot weather.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Furry Friends", I seem to spend a lot of time on creating DT cards that I thought it was time to make one for myself and thought this was an ideal Challenge to start of with, Ive used this sweet lad with his cat, not sure if hes enjoying being carried like that but I printed them onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens. I then cut it out with Nestabilitie Die Labels No.18 and then drew around the die to create the mount out of grey card. The sentiment is one from my stash which I thought was just right for these two.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of grey card and one of three papers from the First Edition "Animal Antics" paper pad, the first pattern is a yellow background with several different animals on, the second paper is a lime green spot and down one edge I have used the EK Success paw print border punch, on top is the third paper which is a cream background with large spots with sentiments in them. I then wrapped some rafia ribbon around the card and tied a knot at the back.
I then positioned my mounted image in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have stuck two cat buttons down the right hand side at the top.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
