A Card for the Sugar Nellie Challenge on Facebook

Good Afternoon Everyone, Im not sure how many of you are aware that Sugar Nellie have a Weekly Challenge on Facebook, they are set on Sunday and then you have the week to make up your card, and this week its a colour challenge, where you are given a list of colours to use on your card, this weeks one is with the following ones:-
And I have used this sweet image of Pippi Longstocking with her frog for my card, Ive coloured her with copic and tria pens, then used the Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut her out then draw around the die to create the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of peach card, the papers I have used are from the Sweet Shoppe Digi Downloads and this one is by Cato Cardall and its called "Friends by Choice" and dont you think thats ironic with this particular image, I know I wouldnt choose a frog for my companion, though I do have a toad that lives in my garden during the summer and makes me jump whether I accidently disturb him.
The flowers were created from some of the papers in greens and pieces and rolled into flowers, they are by Die-namics, and the punched out leaves are by Martha Stewart. Ive also used one of the Cheery Lynn Doilie dies for the two layers behind the image.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
