A Card for Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday

Good Morning Crafters, well yes I have created a card though to be absolutely honest I have been creating cards in the background and not been able to post them as they were all for future Challenges over on The Paper Shelter, and you might well ask the reason why, well its because my eldest daughter Karen is getting married in October and we are of to Scotland for the ceremony and Im also combining it with a couple of very special visits to two friends as well, one on the way up and one before I come home. Im so excited by not only the wedding but also the visits to my friends roll on October I really cant wait.
Well todays card has been created for the Sugar Bowls "Anything Goes" and Sugary Sundays Facebook "Gingham" Challenges and I have used this sweet image which I have stamped onto white card then several layers of gingham papers, then I coloured the face, arms, legs, hair and boots then cut out the layers of gingham papers and layered them on top of the white image.
Afterwards I cut out the image with my Nestabilitie Die and the Detailed Scalloped one for the mount out of lilac card. The sentiment is one from my stash and again it has been cut out with another Nestabilitie Die which is in the same set as the Detailed Scalloped one.
The base card is a 6"x 6" and the first mount is a piece of the same lilac card, the papers are from one of my CDs which I bought on Ebay many years ago, they were created by Sue Bottles of "Country Classics" she really does make some beautiful designs and these are some of them.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
