A Card for the Sugar Bowl "Girlie" Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafters, well its certainly cold outside today and we are being promised some snow maybe, not sure I want that to be honest but hopefully it will pass us by. Anyway todays card has been created for the special "Girlie" Challenge over on the Sugar Bowl, this was the image I chose from my winning last weeks Sugary Sunday Challenge over on Facebook and her name is "Molly" and is one of the Country Cousin Stamps from Funky Kits, shes such a little sweetie and I felt she was just right for this challenge.
Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then cut her out with my rotatrim and also cut a mount for her out of red card, the sentiment is one from my stash and has been also stamped onto white card and mounted onto another piece of the red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and the papers are from the Sweet Shoppe Digi Downloads this one is called "100% Girl" and Ive used three papers a very pretty flower design on a white background and the second is a stripe one which takes in all the colours from the first paper, and the third is a plain red paper which again is picking up the red in the background.
Ive started to keep my cards less bulky for posting as its costs so much for postage and I felt the background paper was busy enough without adding anything extra hope you agree.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful Shirley. I'm sorry Missy has been unwell, touch wood all is still good with Ollie, bless him. I do hope she is on the mend but your poor purse must be feeling the pinch. I seriously don't know how they can get away with the charges they make.
Have a good weekend.
