A Card for Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge - "A Sketch by Leann"

Good Morning Ladies, todays card has been created for this months Challenge from Crafters Companion and this is a Sketch from Leann. Ive used one of Jayne Nesterenko's gorgeous Cute Companions stamps and stamped her onto white card after which Ive used my copic pens to colour her before cutting it out with a Oval Nestabilitie die, Ive then used some pink card and cut out a Scalloped mount for it to be mounted on. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was cut and mount with a circle die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card, a bit unusual size for me, but as the image is so small I found a larger card would have swamped her. Ive used two of the Cute Companion papers for this card, a very pretty all over flower pattern on a pink background and this was then stuck to a piece of pink card, the second layer is a pink gingham pattern and this also was stuck to another piece of pink card.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre, I then created a spray of flowers around the oval with roses of different sizes and then stuck on top of some punched out fern leaves. To finish of Ive punched out some small butterflies and popped them on the mount to make it appear that the little mouse is trying to catch them.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
