A Card for the Teddy Bo Challenge "Bling it On"

Good Morning Everyone, well Im keeping my fingers crossed as it seems a bit warmer this morning and the sun is sort of out but a bit watery, anyway todays card has been created for the Teddy Bo Challenge, dont you just love these little characters as you probably know I love Teddy Bears and Im a great collector of them mainly the named ones as well as the one off type, but I have a cupboard on my landing full of them plus all over the house. Anyway Ive used Teddy Bea in her tutu and I felt it would make a lovely card for one of our granddaughters seeing as both are quite young. Ive printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copics and tria pens after which I cut her out with Nestabilitie Die No. 16 and then cut out another out of pink pearlescent to use as a mount. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and have printed it onto another piece of white card then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it on a spare piece of the same pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card with one of three papers from the "Fairy Princess" digi papers from Nitwits downloads, the first is a very pretty patchwork of pictures then on top is a strip of a heart paper thats had both sides punched with my cherish Martha Stewart border punch, the last mount is a plaid pattern thats been mounted at the bottom along the edge.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used some of the left over paper and my daisy punches to create a layered flower which has had a pearl brad and spacer pushed through the centre and a charm was then hung from the back. This was then stuck to the card with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
