A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Afternoon Crafters, well it was certainly an experience yesterday, firstly trying to get of our estate with all the snow and ice around and we left home at 7.30am to drive 21 miles to Gloucester Hospital, and usually it takes are 45 mins but yesterday it took just over an hour. The main roads werent to bad but of course the commuter traffic got worse once we got closer to the city, anyway thats enough of that, and the least said about my appointment the better all I will say is they wont be getting me to repeat the experience it was hellish and I just hope it was worth all the soreness.
But back todays card this is for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges, its charming on the SSC one and the other is a "Anything Goes" and I used this gorgeous "Rachael" image Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with a circle Nestabilitie Die and used the Esquisite Circle for the mount and some limegreen card. Ive not put a sentiment on this card as I would like to have it ready to add one when I need to do a card in a emergency.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and the papers are from Maja "Walk in the Park" paper set, the first a beige background with leaves and berries on, the second is another beige paper with a marble effect on it, I used one of the Cheery Lynn Doily Dies for this then wrapped a piece of lace around the middle through which I have threaded a piece of lime green ribbon through.
To finish of I have made up a chain and with a dress charm I have tied it to a piece of the same green ribbon and tied in a knot.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
