A Card for Sugary Sunday and Sugar Bowl Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, oh my the weather is just appalling here in Gloucestershire, its raining and its cold in fact weve had to put our heating on again as the house was colder inside than out, Im beginning to wonder if we are ever going to have a good summer, I just hope it changes before this weekend as its going to be so cold for my great grandsons Christening otherwise. We are supposed to be sailing on the broads afterwards for the reception, its been many years since Ive been anywhere near them so it will be lovely if its a nice day, though I am worried about getting bitten as Im one of those unlucky people who gets badly effected near water in the summer.
Anyway this weeks Sugar Bowl card and Sugary Sunday Challenge is all about using Leanne Ellis images and Ive used this one titled "Time Flies" and you will find it at Funky Kits. Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with my rotatrim and then mounted her onto a piece of pink card thats been cut with my deckle edged cutter. The sentiment was done in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and the papers I have used are from First Editions "Love Letters" new paper pad,  Ive used three of the papers for my card, then placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment below on the right. To finish of I have used a La La Land wings die and cut them out of pearlescent card, the watch is a Tim Holtz one that I have mounted on top of the wings.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
