A Card for several Challenges

Good Evening Crafters, its been awhile since Ive used Mo's images but this week she gave a free one for Mothers Day, and of course I thought I would use it to create a birthday card for my one of my grandsons, we have a couple of little ones so this will come into its own when it comes around. I must also let you have an update about my nasty fungal infection that hung around for three weeks in the neither regions its at long last cleared up, it was one of the most sore and painful ones that I have ever suffered and Im so glad to see the back of it, so thank you for all your kind best wishes for a speedy recovery it did the trick.
Anyway Ive printed this little one onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him/her and then used my Nestabilitie Label Die No.1 to cut it out, then used the fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been stamped then mounted onto blue card, as you can see its slipped to a jaunty angle but it doesnt look to bad so Im going to leave it.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads "A Year of Firsts" and I have used three papers for this card, the first is a white background with animals on, the second is a yellow paper and I have used a train border punch along the edge, the third is a blue base with a marble pattern on it.
I then cut a banner for the top with a Marianne die, and the mounted image was then placed in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Shirley, Just adorable, love your darling image and how you colored him so cute. Love the banner.
Sorry I have not been around I pulled my Sciatica nerve and I have been having so much pain, I have not been able to be on my computer much as sitting has been real hard and it have taken a good couple of weeks to get over this.
Hugs, Patricia
