A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenges - "A Sketch"

Good Evening All, now I know Im late but its been a busy afternoon, firstly we went swimming then had some lunch, afterwards we dropped of a very big Camelia to a friend of mine, and then I decided to cut the grass while hubby was visiting his mum in the home. So anyway here we are at last and todays card has been created for the Sugar Bowl's Challenge "A Sketch" and Ive used this little cutie for my card, I stamped her onto white card then used my copic's and tria pens to colour her, I then cut her out with a large square Nestabilitie Die, and I then cut a mount with my rotatrim for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and this has been treaded in the same way, before mounting them I used a scroll stamp and a pink inkpad to just stamp around the edges of both.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one of three papers from the "Forever Friends" papers, the first one is a white background with two coloured butterflies on in blues and pinks, on top is the second mount which is a flower one with a pink background, and the third is a pink and white stripe one. I then wrapped my lace and ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of Ive created a triple bow from some seam binding and then threaded a pearlbrad and spacer through the centre.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
