A Card for Mo's Challenge "A Sketch"

Good Morning all, well I dont know about you but the weather has escaped again, yesterday started nice and warm and hot and then it dissappeared and the worst of it is I decided to wash our pillows of our bed. I thought it would be so hot theyd soon dry but then the sun went in and it started to spit with rain so I had to rush out and bring them in and dry them in the drying machine, what a bummer, not very happy about that.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge and Ive used these sweet two and to me they look like brothers and I found a sentiment on the internet and decided it matched what I thought these two are like.
Ive printed them onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour them out, afterwards I used my oval Nestabilie die to cut them out and the beaded oval for the mount. The base card is a 7"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card and my one paper is from the Dovecraft Baby paper pack its a Alphabet one with animals on, then across the middle I have wrapped a rafia ribbon with a grosgrain ribbon on top and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the left, and instead of flowers around the image Ive used two images of a cat and dog at the bottom on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
