ABC Challenges - "E is for Exceptionally Cute"

Good Morning Crafters, well hopefully Spring is nearly here, I have some daffodils trying to come out and Tulips I love this time of year when everything is beginning to grow all that new growth makes you feel alive again.
Anyway over on ABC Challenges this 5th Challenge is "E is for Exceptionally Cute" and we are being sponsored by Sherri Baldy

and I chose to use one of my own images for the Challenge

unfortunately she doesnt appear to have a name other than Image #175 and you will find her Im sure on Sherri Baldy website here. I have printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle Nestabilitie die to cut her own and stamped a sentiment and used the same die set for the mount for this also.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of blue card I then used Maya's three "Sofiere" papers for my layers and and along the edges of each I have used a similar hole design border punch from Martha Stewart as the one for the mount under the image.
I wrapped a piece of white wrinkle organza ribbon with a blue silk one on top around the left hand side and placed my mounted image in the middle, and created a bow from the whit ribbon and placed it on top of the blue silk in the center.
To finish of I used three white pearls in the top right hand corner and placed my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration in this "E is for Exceptionally Cute" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
