A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Using Favourite Things"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well the sky has clouded over again and I think its going to pour with rain again, poor hubby and Missy got soaked this morning and she was filthy when she got back, and she is now nagging to go out again so I think its going to be repeated, oh well as long as Missy enjoys it what does it matter. Well todays card has been created for this weeks "Using Favourite Things" for Mo, and I just love this little mite sitting on his po, I can remember mine many moons ago going through this stage, and by gum Im relieved I dont need to do it anymore as it was quite stressful for not only them but me also.
Ive printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copics, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.7 to cut it out and the die to draw around for the mount. The base card was is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from the Echo Park "A Boys Life" and as I have to make quite a few cards for boys Ive begun to enjoy it, and the best border punches which I love using is this one with trains on, the final paper is a tartan one and this has also been mounted on a piece of the same blue card. The sentiment is the whimsey flag dies and stamps and has been cut and punched out of the same card and the sentiments have been stamped onto white card then cut out by hand. I then strung them all together and arranged them across the top, the final thing is another of my favourite things and that is two buttons from my stash.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
