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

Good Morning Everyone, I sincerely hope you had a brilliant Christmas, ours was very quite just hubby, me and Missy she had a rare old time opening her Xmas present as youve probably already discovered in the link below. I had a lovely pair of earings from hubby and then he had to put them in as they were the most difficult pair I have ever had and I just couldnt do it myself, I have rather fat lobes, anyway they are in and in they will stay. I also had a lovely terry bathrobe from my daughter and a gorgeous notebook and earings from another of my lovely friends, plus all the gorgeous crafting goodies that arrived from friends with the Christmas cards, thanks girls they were lovely.
Anyway back to todays card it has been made using one of the little Adorables digi images from Funky Kits, isnt he gorgeous Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, then used the oval Nestabilitie die to cut him out and then used a beaded one for the mount.
Because the challenge asked for home made papers I actually used two pearlescent cards the blue and white and ran them both through my Cuttlebug and Grand Calibur machines with embossing folders to create them both. I also used a piece of seam binding for the ribbon which was attached to the back of the first mount, and the sentiment was one from my stash.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
