A card for the Sugary Sunday Facebook Challenge

Good Morning All, for this weeks Facebook Sugary Sunday "Distressing" challenge I needed to make a card and I thought you might like to see what I made. This image is one of the new Funky Kits new Country Cousins image, this one is called "Lei-la" and Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I then used my rotatrim to cut her out and distressed the edges with my cats-eyes inkpads. The sentiment is one from my stash, I really should keep the names of the companies when I take them out of the package but I never seem to remember so sorry about that.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card, and the sketch I have used is this fortnights Sugar Bowl one, and the papers I have used are Dovecrafts handmade papers, the first one is a mulberry one in a soft beige colour, then on top I have used a piece of rose paper that I tore along the middle these where then stuck as the sketch shows.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment at the top along the side. To finish of I have used more of the same mulberry paper and created two flowers with punches and a ball tool, they were then stuck to the card with punched out brown rose leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
