Mojo Monday 149 and Pollycraft Monday Challenge 54

This is a card I have made following the sketch at Mojo Monday 149 and the theme of Love and Marriage at Pollycraft Monday Challenge. I hope this card is ok for both challenges.
I wasn't to sure about this sketch, I found it really hard, so decided on the Square option rather than the Round option, both sketches were the same.  As I was making the card, I tried ribbon, paper, etc for the three strips and nothing seemed to work. The card actually looked better without these, so wasn't going to enter it for Mojo Monday.  Left the card overnight, which seems to be getting a bit of a habit, looked at it again this morning and still couldn't think what to do.  Then I tried these little paper frills from Doodlebug and they kind of worked and helped bring out the colouring of the bears.  By the way, this is a free download image called Cuthbert and Kiki, from Pollycraft Monday Challenge for this challenge.  This was the first time I tried to print out a digi and I don't know if I will try it again.  On my first attempt, I had it all coloured and decided to add stickles to the bottom frills of the dress.  As the stickles was drying, you could see that the ink below was started to bleed, so in the bin it went.  Printed out another copy, slightly to large and tried again, with no stickles this time just in case. It was nice not to have get out acrylic blocks, ink and image, stamp and then clean and put away.  Although I think there is maybe more satisfaction when you stamp an image yourself, maybe not.
