A Card for Sugary Sunday and Sugar Bowl Challenges

Good Afternoon Crafters, I know, I know Ive not been very good at posting over the last week but as usual Ive been busy with DT Challenge posts and they do take time to write up, anyway I have at least created a couple of cards, this one for this weeks Sugary Sunday's "Pearls and Pins" and another for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch" Challenge, anyway I have used this sweet image and I believe its one of Elizabeth Bells, its an old one of Funky Kits and I have unfortunately lost the name of her so I hope you will forgive me. Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Rectangle Die from Nestabilitie. I then cut a large one for the mount, the sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used are from Echo Parks "So Happy" paper set, the background one is a green/blue paper, and the second is a yellow spot one and the third a patchwork one of several colours, these were all layered up as the sketch require. To finish of I has popped three pearls down the bottom left hand corner, and with some left over paper I have used a Marianne punch I have layered up three separate flowers and attached them to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves, Ive also popped two yellow heart pins in the middle, I also put three pearl brads in the center of the flowers.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
