A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Lets Hear it for the Boys"

Good Morning All, well this is the second card Ive posted this morning, just finished over on my No.1 blog now its this ones turn, this card today has been created for Mos Challenge "Lets here it for the Boys" and Ive used her little chap here which is titled "Chickies", Ive printed him onto white card before colouring him with my copic pens afterwhich Ive used my large circle Nestabilitie Die to cut him out, then used a large scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one from TLC and its free, Ive printed this also onto white card then used my rotatrim to cut it out, Ive also mounted this onto a piece of pale green pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card, and one of two papers from the Papermania's "Spring Time" pack of papers, the first paper is a all over sentiment with a line of chickens down the edge, the second paper which Ive cut in a strip is a striped pattern with eggs down the bottom, this I have used a chicken border punch on both edges and stuck it down on top of the first layer, then positioned my mounted image in the middle and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive used two green buttons and threaded through a green bakers twine and tied it in bows and then attached them to the top on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
