A Card for Many Challenges

Good Morning Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your Easter and you got lots of Easter Eggs, do you know I didnt get one, mind you hubby has just gone of to do his volunteering so he didnt get much time to buy me one, never mind Im sure I will be better of for not having one. Todays card has been created for "The Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge" and as a thank you for a very dear friend who send me several goodies yesterday the stamp being one of them, she knows who she is and I want to thank her from the bottom on my heart, bless you love, Mum loves you. (A private Joke) Anyway Ive stamped this little Sassy girl onto white card and coloured her with my Tria pens, wow they are really lovely to use they have a very fine nib allows you to get right in those difficult places, but theres a tale behind my getting mine and be aware they are expensive.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used a pink pearlescent card and one of three papers from the "Forever Friends" paper pack, the first one is a pretty white background with butterflies on, the second mount is a stripe paper and the third a check. I then positioned my image as sketch requires, and my sentiment has been placed below in the right hand corner. Because the amount of space left wont allow me to pop three embellishments across the bottom but I have put two there and one at the top on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Shirley lovely card, beautifully coloured and great pink theme. I wouldn't have had an egg either if it had been left to my hubby so when buying for the family I slipped in a wee one for myself!
Happy crafting and thanks for taking part in the Sugar bowl challenge.
