ABC Challenges - "Y is for your own Choice"

Happy New Year Crafters, I hope you all had a wonderful Xmas, Im scheduling this post as Im due to have my cataract done on December 29th and Im not sure if Im going to be able to write up a post on the 30th so I hope you wont mind me being a bit early with my doing this. Eye operation update, all went well though they did burst a blood vessel when injecting into the eye so was weeping blood for awhile, its extremely sore but getting better and at least the cataract has gone so I have clear vision ahead.
This first Challenge over on ABC Challenges starts with the letter "Y" and the theme is all about picking your own design and Image and for this we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and as you probably know I have been on their Design Team for 5 years so I have quite a lot of Images to play with.
Veronica and Pedro are offering you a fabulous prize of $20. to spend on their website

And for my Card for this Challenge I chose this image

This little lady is called "She Wolf" you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Circle die from Little B Dies they are a fabulous die company that sell their dies with a magnetic folder so you cant loose them. I used two of their other dies to create the mount the first out of beige card and the second of a darker one and layered them up as shown.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of beige card, the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here, I then printed a second one and cut it out and layered it under the mount of the image as shown in the photo. I did stamp the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner as it wasnt big enough to put a mounted one.
I then used several flowers and created the floral spray which has been mounted down the left side and across the top of my card.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pop over to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team has created for your inspiration and hopefully you to want to take part in this "Y is for your own Choice" Challenge.
