A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge - "A Sketch"

Good Morning Everyone, the sun is out and its quite mild, so it looks almost like Spring is on its way, but dont bank on it. Missy is asking to go for her walk but so far no-one is taking her seriously so shes getting more anxious that daddy is not going to take her out. Hes just got back from Monmouth after having to return a new saucepan he bought me yesterday as it had a split down one of the edges so obviously it couldnt be used, we were told if youd tried to use it, it would have either exploded or split even further down the side.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge, and I have used Rosie for my main image, this was the stamp I won in last weeks Sugary Sunday on Facebook, its one of the weekly Challenges on there that I take part in, and Ive stamped and coloured her with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 to cut it out, then used the larger one for the mount. The sentiment is on the tag which if you look closely is tucked behind the image.
The base card is  6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers I have used are by Nitwits "One Birdie Lane" digi set I used is so pretty I thought it went well with my image. The card has been made up to the sketch that was to be used, and for the final flourish I have used my brand new Epiphany Button maker (brilliant for making homemade buttons), its like a punch with a facility to turn it into button or embellishments, and I created two buttons with some of the first paper and stuck them down the side on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

From what I've learned on the Food Network, exploding pans are most inconvenient. So glad you noticed that before trying to use it.
Your card on the hand explodes with cuteness and is really adorable. Nicely done. :)
