A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, well I dont know about you but it seems this weather is never going to improve all day yesterday we had heavy rainfalls though I must say it was a lot warmer than its been for awhile, I just wish it would improve so we can see the trees starting to leaf up at the moment there doesnt seem to be much growth at all on them. I did treat myself to some polyanthus and pansy's yesterday and popped them into the pots on my patio and they are giving us some colour for a change so maybe it might encourage the rest of the garden to cheer up, you never know.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sugar Bowl "Anything Goes" Challenge and the Sugary Sundays "Favourite Colours" one, Ive used this sweet Funky Kits fairy image for my card.

I know that pink is not the easiest of colour to use so I took the bull by the horn and then used it to colour my image, its one of my favourite colour choice as is purple and I did use a little of that on the lollipops. I then used Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut it out and a decorative one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card the papers I have used are from My Minds Eye "Memorable" paper pad, the first a pretty pink background with white spot on, and for my second I have used a flower pattern on a cream background along the edge I have used a deep edged punch down the edge, then placed it onto the base mount and then took another piece of white card and ran it through my ebosser with a embossing folder and placed it along the top of the same piece of pretty paper.
The mounted image was then placed in the middle and then I cut a piece of pink card and used a label die for the sentiment and which was also cut with a oval die and placed on the label die and stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. The final flourish is the four gems in the top two corners.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
