A Card for Sugary Sunday and Sugar Bowl Challenges

Good Afternoon, Ive been meaning to post this card for a couple of days, but with waiting for my great grandson to make his appearance which was at 3am this morning, I have been helping a neighbour though a difficult time, her hubby died a couple of weeks ago and the funeral was on Thursday I seem to have had a busy time so I do hope you will forgive me for being so lapse at in posting it.
This card was created from one of the new stamps from Funky Kits, its all to do with shopping, and I have stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used my oblong die to cut her out, and one of the new Spellbinder dies for the mount, but before taking it out of the die I ran it through my embosser with a embossing folder to create the pattern behind her.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used this time are from Sweethshoppe's Digi Papers and this set is called "Both Sides of Her" and the first paper is a white background with multi coloured flowers on it, on top is a second all over turquoise colour that I have cut into a 5" square and I have used a border and corner punch on it to create a square. On top of this I have laid yet another piece of the same blue card that was used for the mount and cut a 3" square and ran this also through a embossing folder, and laid it on top of the second layer.
The mounted image was then placed towards the left with the sentiment on the right, but because of lack of room I have laid it on its side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
