A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, well its very cold outside today so as the weatherman has warned us its possible we are soon in for some snow, I just hope it stays of till Ive taken the dog for a walk at lunch time, dont fancy walking in a snowstorm. Anyway here is my card for the Sugar Bowl "Anything Goes" Challenge and Ive used one of their new Vintage Adorables images, this one is called "Alicia" and thats my mums middle name and always thought it was such a pretty name. Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then cut her out with a Circle Nestabilitie Die, the mount is cut out with the Esquisite Circle die out of blue card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted onto a piece of the same blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers I have used for this card are My Minds Eye "Oliver" paper set, they are all with patterns on a plain background and then I have placed my mounted image towards the right and the sentiment at the bottom below it. To finish of I have used several daisy's in yellow and white with some pearl sprigs to had some green into it, this was placed around the bottom left hand of the mount and stuck to the card with silicone glue.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
