A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Afternoon Crafters, yes I know Ive let you down again, Ive been rather busy this week trying to get ahead with my DT work as I know Im going to be having two of my grandsons down for a week in July, and in the meantime we are of to Norwich this weekend for my great grandsons Christening and then to Looe, Cornwall at the beginning of July, and I know I shall want to sort myself out before we go so thats why I have been trying to get ahead of my DT work, and hopefully we are almost there. Anyway to make up for it I created this card for this weeks Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday (Facebook) Challenges and have used this Leanne Ellis image, its been a long time since I have used any of them and the Sugar Bowl Blog are promoting them again hoping they might come back in fashion, so I thought Id give it a go.
I have stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I have used a square Nestabilitie Die to cut it out, and then used a Deckledge blade to create the mount for it out of pink card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been mounted on a folded tag from La La Land.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers are from First Edition "Love Letters" and I have used two papers from it, the base one is a pink background with a heart swirl pattern on and the second is a strip of patterned paper down the middle with flowers on it.
I have placed the mounted image in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, I have also cut out with a Memory Box Precious Hearts Die two hearts and placed them at the top on the right. To finish of I have used 5 roses in various sizes and some punched out rose leaves in a spray at the top on the left hand side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
