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

Good Morning Everyone, well Im so sorry for not doing much in the posting line, but its been busy here even though Ive not put anything on my blog I have been creating cards, I want to try and get ahead before we go away for a few days at the end of May, and you know what its like the time whizzes by and before you know it the holiday date is here and none of my DT cards are ready either to post or to schedule. So I thought that I would for today post a card for not only this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge "A Sketch" but also for their Sugary Sunday Challenge over on Facebook, this week its a colour challenge.
And I decided to use "Elaines" favourite character "Pippa Longstockings" and I agree she is gorgeous and so so cute, Ive stamped her onto white card and then used my copics to colour her, afterwards Ive cut her out with Nestabilitie Label Die No.17 and then drawn around the die to create the mount, the sentiment is one from my stash and has also been stamped and then mounted onto the same colour card as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green/blue card and the papers Ive used are from the Sweetshope digi downloads and this one is called "Two Straws" and this first paper has lots of scrolls on, and on top is a piece of diamond patterned paper in green and blue, this was positioned down the card.
I then cut out two swirls and positioned them in the bottom left hand corner, and then on top I positioned my mounted image, and the sentiment was stuck down the edge of the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
