A second card for Sugary Sunday on Facebook

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and it looks as if its going to be a lovely day, lets hope so. We had a fabulous time at the NEC yesterday and yes I did spend lots of money but hubby seemed ok with that thankfully, I also got to meet up with the lovely Marianne (Fisher), Lisa (Baker) and Lynsey (Warren), we had a right old chat and even had a couple of photos taken so dont be surprised if you see it out there in blogland. Anyway at the begining of the week I actually made two cards for this weeks Sugary Sunday over on Facebook, I posted my first one of my No.2 blog and I thought for a change I would post this second one here on my No.1. As Im going to be quite busy over the next few days creating cards for Sarah Hallam of Peerless Designs (will be posting my sample cards on my No.2 blog in next few days) I felt Id rather neglected you and thought you might like to see a card for a change, hope you like it.
Anyway this is one of the new Pip digi images, and I love this little one with her lamb, Ive printed her onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out with the Nestabilitie Die Labels No.4 and then used a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount of blue card on top I have layered up with papers from the Nitwits "At the Park" digi paper set, the first is a white background with multi coloured flowers on, the second is a yellow and white stripe and the third is a blue spot one. I then positioned my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right, and to finish of Ive used some of the left over papers and a die-namics flower die and stuck it to the top of the right hand corner on top of some punched out leaves. The final flourish I used two of the Epiphany buttons which were cut out of some of the left over paper then positioned down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
