A Card for Mo's Challenge "Stitching"

Good Morning Everyone, well here we are at yet another weekend and today Ive got this card to post for this weeks "Stitching" challenge over on Mo's, and Ive used this sweet image of "Wynken, Blynkin and Nod" and thought it would make a lovely birthday card for one of my little people who will be celebrating their first birthdays this year, its also a image thats been well forgotten as I bought it a couple of years ago and I thought it was time it had an outing. Ive printed it onto white card then used my copics to colour it, afterwards I used the large square to cut it out and used the larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one I created from my computer using the first verse of the poem and just tagged a birthday wish at the bottom, this was also mounted onto blue card.
The main card is a 6"x 6" white card and the four papers I have used are from the Nitwits "Oh Boy" download, the first paper is a blue background then on top is a piece of yellow, the third is a white with large coloured spots on and the fourth a beige one. Before sticking them down I used my sewing machine to zigzag around the edges, then layered them up from a sketch that I found on the internet, I believe its one for another Challenge at the moment and thought it would be ideal for my card.
The mounted image was positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, Ive also wrapped a piece of grosgrain ribbon around the card on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
