A Card for the New Year

Good Morning and Happy New Year, hope your all feeling ready to start getting back to crafting again, Im afraid this card got done yesterday but I didnt get around to taking a photo so I thought to start the New Year I would post it today.
Its for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges and I have used the Sherbit Pips image from Sugar Nellie, isnt she gorgeous, Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, I should have said its a colour challenge and heres the colours you were expected to use.
Hopefully Ive got as near as possible with my colouring. Anyway I then used Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out then drew around the die to create the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of turquoise card the papers I have used are from Sweethshoppe Digi "First of Many Things" paper set, and they are a patterned pair and one plain one, Ive used the Sugar Bowl Sketch for the card layout. And to finish of I have used some of the left over papers and a daisy punch in different sizes for the flower at the bottom on the left hand side. The sentiment is one from my stash.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
