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

Good Afternoon Everyone, well so far today its been a lot warmer than yesterday and weve luckily not had any snow showers today and the sun has been out at times so its not been a bad a day. Todays card has been created for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch and Paper Piecing" Challenge, and I have used this sweet image for my card, Ive stamped her onto white card and then stamped it again twice onto two different papers from the Maja Designs "Life in the Country" paper pack, the green for her little jacket and socks, and the flowered one for her dress.
Before sticking them onto the image Ive coloured her with my copics and glittered the wings then stuck the cut out pieces on top. I then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Labels No.8 die and then drawn around the same die for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 5" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card thats been put through my cuttlebug with one of the larger embossing folders, then on top is a piece of the green paper that was left and this also has been mount onto a piece of the same green card. Ive then wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottom and created a bow from the same ribbon and stuck it to the card with some silicone glue. The sentiment is one of the CC stamps and this also has been mounted on a piece of the same green card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
