A Card for Saturated Canary "Anything Goes" Challenge

Good Morning Everyone, well at least so far today its dry here, Im hoping it will stay that way as Ive got to take the dog for a walk after lunch and also perhaps have a go at cutting the grass, hubby is voluntering today with the local Steam Railway and with luck weve been having lately its likely to turn nasty again tomorrow if we leave it.
I was lucky enough to be picked for top 3 at Saturated Canary this week and I thought as it was a "Anything Goes" challenge I would take part again as I seemed to have been rather lapse in joining in the challenges lately. This gorgeous image is "Cinders" dont you feel sorry for her left to do the housework? Not something us crafters like to do, anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.4 to cut her out, then used a larger one for the mount. The sentiment is one of the CC ones thats been treated in the same was as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of blue card for this card I have used four papers from the "Simply Sassy" digi paper set from Sweet Shoppe Digi Downloads, the first paper is a blue spot, then on top is a green one that I cut into a strip and used one of the Martha Stewart Border punches on, then on top is a third paper thats also been mounted on a piece of the same blue card. The final paper is a lilac one thats been cut with the new "Whimsey" double Scallop Die that I bought from Tracy at "Dies to Die" for, she wanted to see what I would do with it, so here you are Tracy, hope you like it.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of I have used five roses of different sizes with some punched out green leaves with yet another paper from the same paper set, these were then stuck to the top left hand corner with some silicone glue.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
