A Card for Saturated Canary "Autumn Colours"

Good Afternoon All, its dark again early and Im already fed up with these long evenings, Im sure its not supposed to get dark by 4pm but who am I to say. Anyway todays card has been created for the Saturated Canary "Autumn Colours" Challenge, and I was lucky enough to receive my new Sassy Girls stamps this morning from Funky Kits, and I chose this young lady for my topper, isnt she gorgeous, anyway I stamped her onto white card then used my copics to create a rainbow on her dress, and then cut her out with the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die and used a Deckle edged one for the mount, the sentiment is one from my stash and Ive mounted it in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark yellow pearlescent card and Ive then used three papers from the K & Company "Classic K Bailey" Paper pack, this first paper is in shades of brown with a rose pattern on, the second I cut in a strip and this is beige/yellow paper and I used my Martha Stewart leaf border punch down the edge, on top I have placed my third paper a red and orange flower pattern which has been mounted on some more of the yellow card.
The mounted image was then positioned towards the right, with the sentiment at the bottom on the left, to finish of Ive used two of the left over papers to cut our a Nestabilitie Blossom die cut and then rolled it up to create a double layered flower, this was then attached to the card with some silicone glue on top of punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
