The Twentyseventh Challenge for The Paper Shelter "A Receipe"

Well good morning all, I survived the first Team Leader DT posting though I did make a mistake with the finishing date and Im determined not to make that mistake again, I think it went down well though again Im just as scared at this my second attempt at writing up the Challenge on The Paper Shelter Blogspot as I was before, I do hope it gets less so as time goes by.
Anyway todays challenge is a "Receipe" and we want you to use
a. 3 Designer Papers
b. 2 Images
c. 1 Embellishment 
Im sure you will be able to create a fabulous card within these limits and Im looking forward to seeing what you do make. As always were are being sponsered by our fabulous talented couple Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter
and they are offering you a gift certificate of $15 to spend in their webshop The Paper Shelter and the rule is if you use one of their images on your card (two this week) you will be entitled to the whole amount, but dont despair even if you dont you will still win one of them, and this is all decided with the random number org. So lets see what you can come up with, heres my card for this weeks Challenge.
For my card I have used "Walking with my Buddy" and "My lovely Pet" and I took them into my graphics program to allow me to create this image with the two of them, then coloured them with my copic and tria pens. I then used Nestabilitie Label Die No.12 to cut it out and then used the die to draw around to create the mount for it, the sentiment is one from my stash and at the moment I carnt remember where it came from, sorry about that but felt it went well with these two.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card then I have mounted on this one of three papers from The Paper Shelters "Spring Swing" digi paper set, the first paper is a patchwork one and on top across the card is a second paper and this is pink pattern on, and for the third mount is a blue paper with white flowers on. The mounted image was then placed in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I created a flower with the Die Namics flower die with some left over blue paper and this was then stuck to the card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves in the top left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope your go across to The Paper Shelter Blogspot and see what the rest of my very talented "A" team have created for you, and hopefully this will inspire you to take part in this "A Receipe" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

The card has become beautiful. I did not think that it is possible the color combination pink and blue represent that great. And the motive is really cute.
Have a nice day.

Hi Shirley. Thanks for your comment on my blog. The reason I made a mouth on Tilda is because my husband thinks the same way. He's been saying Tilda isn't cute due to the fact that she has no mouth, so I finally decided to make her one and see if he approves. Now he's actually liking the
