A Card for a New Challenge - Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - A Sketch

Afternoon Ladies, well I do so hope you are enjoying your Sunday, its been raining of and on here today, its not that it matters really but my hubby had said first thing it wasnt going to rain, and I told him it was but his answer was that the weather forecast definitely says its not going to, but I had the last laugh as it has most of the day that fine stuff that soaks everything.
Anyway todays card has been created for the second Challenge of Kenny K's Krafty Girlz and this one is a sketch by my very special friend Donna of Bearly Mine Extreme Designs, so to honour her Ive used three of her papers for my card. Ive used this funky young lady from Kenny and coloured her with both my copics and my promarkers and then cut her out with my oval Nestabilitie die, and used a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one that I have in my stash and this was also mounted on to a piece of blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of blue card and my first pattern and all over flower design on a blue and white background, the second paper is a stripped one of several colours and Ive used one of Martha Stewart border punches on both edges of it. The third and last mount is another of the patterns this one a plaid and this has been layered onto a blue card mount and then stuck across the centre.
The mounted image was positioned just to the left, and the sentiment in the centre on the right.
To finish of Ive created two sprays of several sizes of roses from Wild Orchids and Mulberry Flowers and stuck them on some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered into the following challenges:
