A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Afternoon fellow Crafters, well I dont know about you but in my part of the woods its thundering and raining, not to nice but I suppose we ought not to be to greedy as we have had some beautiful weather lately and it was bound to change, right? Anyway to cheer you up I thought you might like to see what I have been upto, this is one of the Pip images from Sugar Nellie and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with my Nestabilitie Die and a fancy one for the mount, I also used a smaller one from the same die set for the mount for my sentiment, which was printed from my computer and cut to fit the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" and the first mount is blue card and the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Dare 2be Different" digi paper set, I have used three papers for the card and layered them up as shown, I then placed the mounted image towards the left with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
I then used several more of the papers from the same paper set and 3 of the Woodware Daisy punches and created a layered flower in the top right hand corner, I used my ball tool to shape the petals and layered them up and stuck them to the card on top of some cut leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
