A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Here comes Summer"

Good Evening everyone, Im still missing my last post on this blog, I expect like me youve found Blogger down nearly all day so Im just relieved that I can get this post done, Ive just finished one on my No.1 blog so lets get on with this one. This card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Here comes Summer" and Ive used this little cutie, whos enjoying being at the beach and she looks as though shes been swimming to. Ive printed her onto white card and coloured her with my Copic and Tria pens, then used Nestabilie Die No.17 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one that I found on the internet and printed it and mounted it onto a piece of the same blue pearlescent card thats been used for the image as well.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount blue card and Ive used three papers from Nitwits "Summer in Bloom" downloads the first paper is a white background with several patchwork flowers on and on top of this is a yellow flower paper which has had both edges punched with a shell border punch from Martha Stewart, then on top is another of the papers a stripped one in different blue and green stripes, which has been mounted on a blue pearlescent card.
The image has been mounted in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, I have popped two seahorses in the two opposite corners, and to finish of I have created three flowers from the left over papers and have stuck them on some silicone glue and punched out leaves in the top left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
