A Card for the Sugar Bowl "Colour" Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafters, well its pouring with rain here in Gloucestershire and no doubt the Wye and Severn will overflow again Im so glad I dont live quite so near to it as some of the places along the rivers become flooded. Anyway todays card has been created for the colour Challenge over on the Sugar Bowl.
I have used a gorgeous image from Funky Kits and stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Dies to cut her out and mounted her onto a Destressed edge 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 Sweetshoppe Digi "Heart Smiles" paper set, the first one a damask pattern in pink the second a grey one and the third a plaid one in pink and grey and white.
I then placed my mounted image slopping towards the right with Memory Box Precious Hearts down the left side and a sentiment across the bottom left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Oooooh, I likes it! The grey and pinks from your papers carried into your design beautifully. Your layering is perfect to showcase this image and the die cut "Precious Hearts" is all the embellishment needed - well done toots!
Thanks Shirley, for sharing your creativity & project with us!
