A Card for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch" Challenge

Good Morning All, I dont know about you but the weather here has been awful already this morning, weve had sunshine, dry and then a heavy rain shower, Im so glad that I dont have any plans to go out but hubby does when the takes the dog for a walk this afternoon and if he has any sense he will pick the right moment providing Missy lets him. Im sorry Ive not done much posting this week but Im in the throws of creating cards for my friend Sarah of Peerless Designs she has a brand new CD due out in July and I need to get several samples make ready to post her. Anyway todays card is for this weeks Sugary Sunday "Diecuts" Challenge and for the Sugar Bowls "Sketch" Challenge, and Ive used one of their new "Country Cousins" images and this one is called "Cat Sitting" isnt she cute. Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I then used my rotatrim to cut her out and mount her onto red card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and Ive used several papers from the Digital Scrap "Fall" digi download papers, the first one is a red background with seed heads on, the second Ive used two strips as the sketch shows and a stripe paper in several colours these were placed across the base paper.
The mounted image was positioned towards the left and the sentiment down the side of it. To finish of I have used two Memory Box leaf spray dies and cut two out in two different colours then used a rolled Die-namics flower dies in yet two more of the papers from the same digi paper set, then rolled them and placed them on top of the leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
