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

Good Afternoon All, well I know its been a few days since I posted a card but again its been a busy one, and I thought for a change I would take part in this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge "A Sketch" and Ive used this sweet "Sassy Girl" for my image and have coloured her with my Copic and Tria pens, then used the circle Nestabilitie Die to cut it out then drew around the edge of the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with the first mount is a piece of blue pearlescent card andone of three papers from "Echo Parks Country Drive" paper pad the first a blue background with yellow daisies in a triangle pattern on top is another blue and white pattern paper which has been mounted and then stuck down the middle. I then wrapped three pieces of seam binding across the middle and then on top is the third paper another triangle patterned paper in blue and white.
I mounted my image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. I popped some pearls on the ribbon on either side and to finish of I created a flower with some of the left over paper and this was stuck at the top on the left hand side of the mounted image.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
