A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Afternoon Everyone, sorry Ive not been posting to much lately, but have been busy trying to catch up in advance with my DT cards but also I wanted to spend sometime with my Yorkie Missy, as she had to have several operations yesterday, she was spayed, six dew claws had to be removed and two baby teeth which werent going to come out on their own as they were rather impacted in her jaw. Anyway fortunately everything went well and shes in a good condition though she has removed some of her stitches from one of her back legs, and has now got a hole and Im hoping it will heal of its on accord and wont need stitching up again, we have to go to the local vets on Saturday for a check up so we will be able see what they say then.
Anyway back to the card Ive posted today, as you are probably aware Sugar Nellie also run a Sunday challenge on Facebook, they are mainly colour challenges and are great fun, you really out to have a look for yourself and join in the fun. Ive also found that the sketch Ive used is the one they are using for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge and so Im going to enter it in there to.
The image is a real cutie and her name is "Belle" and Ive coloured her with my copic pens and cut it out with a Memory Box dies (which are my favourite tool) and then used another for the mount. The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of turquoise card and the papers Ive used are from Kay Millers "Fairy Dust" digi papers. Ive also used some of the papers to create a rolled flower with a Spellbinders flower die, this was stuck to the top on the left on top of some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
