Read me a story

This Elisabeth Bell image is doing one of my favorite things - reading a good book!  And not only that, she appears to be telling the story to her best friend, which is a lovely thing to do, in this "technical" age, where most would rather be on their electronics.  This has been colored in prismas and as you see, I've done a little different technique in adding a tag to this card - it can be pushed down behind the image so it's tucked away (I had to remember not to fully glue my image down to allow it to open!).  There's a ribbon/bow across the bottom, to which I've glued a sweet little bear button to, that I cut the back shank off of.  The flowers were attached and tiny pearls added to the centers, along with pearls in the upper corner diecuts.
I have entered the following challenges:
