A Card for Sugary Sunday and Sugar Bowl Challenges

Good Evening Everyone, I know Im late but its been a busy day, we always go swimming twice a week and today was one of those days, I really need the exercise so I have to put my mind into trying to more lengths each time I go, but it doesnt always happen but I did manage to do 22 today so at least it made a difference after only managing 14 on Tuesday. Todays card has been created for this fortnights Sugar Bowl Challenge and the Sugary Sunday on on Facebook that is a colour one and here the colours theyve chosen for this week.
A bit of a difficult choice to play with, but I think Ive covered them all, there is a bit of the light blue in her wings if you look a bit closer you can see it. Ive used "Rosie" from Funky Kits and stamped her onto white card before using my copic pens to colour her, the Nestabilitie Die No.1 is what I used to cut her out and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is yet another from my stash and has also been mounted on a piece of pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers I have used are the Authentique "Uncommon" Im sure there must be another name for it but this is the one I found on the front. Anyway the first paper is a cream/beige background with roses on in black, pink and red, then on top is a dark grey script paper thats been placed across the first mount then on top is a patterned paper in circles thats been stuck down the card. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the left hand side.
I have also used one of the Die-namics swirl die to cut out in pink card this has been stuck down the right handside, then I used some of the left over script paper with the Royal Rose rolled die from Die-namics cut it out then rolled it up and placed it at the top of the swirl. To finish of I have used 6  black pearls in two sizes down the left and right hand sides.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
