A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugery Sunday Challenges

Good afternoon Everyone, I dont know how your coping with all this wet weather but my poor dog comes back soaked most days, does this mean we are in for another wet summer I do so hope not, only time will tell. Anyway back to todays card, this one was created for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch" Challenge and for the Sugary Sunday Facebook Colour Challenge.
Not the most easy of colour charts but I do hope you think Ive managed to use them in one way or another, the image is one of the Ribbonista girls this one is called "Belle" and Ive stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, I then used my large rectangle die from Nestabilities and this was mounted onto a larger piece of card. 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 with a first mount of orange/pink card and the papers Ive used are from Sweet Shoppe Digi Downloads, and this set is called "Grace" I love the colours and patterns, the first paper is a all over small flower pattern and the second one which is a little difficult to see but it has large flower heads on, the third is a damask paper in brown and this one was mounted down the card with some cream paper streamers tied around it.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment down the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have used several of the left over papers and the Royal Rose Die-namics rolled flower dies, to create the flower spray in the top right hand corner, these were stuck to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
