Cuddly Buddly's Challenge 9 - "Say Something Nice"

Good Morning All, well here is my first card for a brand new Challenge Design Team, and Ive got to say what a fabulous welcome they all gave me, thank you so much girls and Im so looking forward to working with such a extremely talent team. Now if youve not checked on this very beautiful shop Cuddly Buddly I do wish you would pop across and see what Kim has to offer you, the images are gorgeous and so easy to use and the papers are divine, here are some of the very talented Artists and Designers that she has to offer you

Eline Pellinkhof whose images and papers Im using this time

For my card this time I have used a pre-coloured image by Eline Pellinkhof which  is titled "Waterside"
and it has a "Cat, Bear, Bunny and lots of extras" incorporated and you will find it here and here is my card for this Challenge.
 Firstly I started by taking both the images into my graphics program and combining the bear with the duck, then printed them onto white card and using my Nestabilitie Die No.12 to cut it out and creating a mount for it out of blue pearlescent card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way, before sticking the image onto the mount I used my pale blue catseye to distress the edges of this and the sentiment.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with yet a bit more of the same blue card and then used one of three papers from the same "Waterside" set the first one is a stripe paper of blue and white which I have laid down in a across the horizontal way to give the illusion of water, and I then cut a corner piece of the red and white stripe one and used my EK success border punch down the the edge, and my last mount is a white background with a blue spot on and this was mounted on yet another piece of the same blue card and stuck on top of the red and white stripe paper.
I then positioned my image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, and to finish of I found a yacht button in my stash and threaded a piece of red and white bakers twine through the holes and tied it in a knot and stuck to the bottom left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do so hope you will be inspired to go across and visit the Cuddly Buddly Challenge Blogspot and take part in this "Say Something Nice" Challenge.
