A Card for several Challenges

Good Evening Crafters, well I thought that you might like to see a card Ive made for this weeks Sugary Sunday (Facebook) and Sugar Bowl Challenges, both are anything goes, but the one for SS wants to see Spring Colours on your card, so Im hoping that this card meets the bill.
I had a wonderful weekend I spend it on a Copic Pen Retreat in Oxford near Harwell Power Station and a fabulous DeVere's Hotel complex, with several like minded girls, we had a brilliant time and I learned quite a few new methods of using them even air brushing which is something Ive wanted to have a go at but been a little nervous of doing it, but it went well. The only problems with the hotel were, firstly the room they gave me was in a old cottage which had leaded windows and they didnt shut properly so I was in a draft during the night and I woke up cold, then Saturday night I just couldnt get warm and didnt sleep at all which was exhausting and yesterday I was than tired I just didnt have the strength to talk to hubby and he was under the impression I was moody, I told him I was just tired, but other than this and a late dinner on Saturday I did have a wonderful time and the girls were lovely.
Anyway this card has been created using of of the Sherbet Pips from Funky Kits, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie dies to cut her out and one of the new ones for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of orange card and the papers I used are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads and this one is called "Carefree Days" they are really some gorgeous paper sets and I love these in particular, the first a white background with multi coloured flowers on, the second is a orange spot one, then across the card I have stuck a lime green ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount. The sentiment is another of the same dies as the mount and has been stuck down the side of the card.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
