A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Boys with Attitude"

Good Afternoon All, well I dont know about you but its cloudy and its been raining here in Gloucestershire, I dont mind this weekend but Im sincerely hoping it will improve by next as we are of to Guernsey on Thursday to spend a few days and attending a Christening on the Sunday and I do so hope that it will be a lovely day or at least dry but only time will tell. Todays card is for this weeks Mo's Challenge "Boys with Attitude" and this little mite is really begging to be picked up, I should know as my second daughter when she was small was forever asking to be picked up as she didnt want to walk anywhere, Ive printed him onto white card and coloured with my copic pens then used my Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out and then used the die to draw around and then cut it out with my scissors out of lime green card. The sentiment was one that I created on my computer and printed it and mounted it in the same was as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and one of three papers from Kay Millers "Dinosaurus" digi paper set, the first paper is a yellow background with several different colours of dinosaurs, on top of this is a green check that Ive cut in a strip and used my EK Success dinosaur border punch on both edges, then on top is a sentiment paper and this was then stuck on a piece of gree card and stuck across the centre of the second paper.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, but I then used some lime green rafia and threaded it through a stripped button and wrapped around the left hand side of the card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

I had to laugh over this post. My grandson was forever saying, "Hold you". Which meant he wanted me to carry him. Now he is 6 and thinks he is much too big for me! the card!
