A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Morning, brrrr its cold outside even though the sun is out its still cold, anyway Im of and away this weekend for a Copic Colouring Retreat in Oxford and Im really excited but I do have to pack up all my pens and goodies ready to take with me tomorrow so I think Im going to busy with that. Anyway my great grandson is doing well and my grandson and his wife are really thrilled with him, thank you so much for all the lovely comments and good wishes Im sure if he reads my blog he will see for himself.
This weeks card is yet again one of the new Funky Kits "Shopping for Fashion" stamps isnt she gorgeous and Im quite pleased with her hair colour though Im not sure it would suit me, but I suppose if Id been born with it I probably would have thought otherwise. Anyway Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used one of the rectangle Nestabilitie dies to cut her out and one of the new dies for the mount and the sentiment one. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and because of lack of space Ive had to lay it on its side.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of turquoise card and the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppes "Bring on the Spring" paper set, the first a lovely all over flower pattern, then I have used a plain colour and one of the tonic circle punches for the doily then for the other two mounts are a check one behind the image and a orange one across the bottom.
Ive not added any embellishments as I think as its rather crowded they would make it worse and of course Im trying to watch my postage as my hubbys the one to gets to pay for it, and some of the cards Ive send are extremely expensive.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
