Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies makes a Thank You card

Hi guys, I had a bit of time to spare this evening, so decided I really needed to get my mojo back, and get back into my craft room... Here is the card I made
Ok, so this card is almost completely Stampin' Up! Everything but that adorable lil girl.... she's from My Favourite Things and a small strip of patterned paper, which is almost a perfect match for Calypso Coral, it is from My Minds Eye. The card base is New In Colour, Wisteria Wonder, layered with some Pear Pizzazz and some Calypso Coral and patterned paper. I stamped the doily on a piece of Whisper White, in Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade, then set it aside. I stamped the little girl on Watercolour paper in Staz-on and then coloured her using my blender pens and ink pads, in Poppy Parade, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. Once I'd finished colouring her, I cut her out and stuck her on the whisper white piece with a sentiment (from Just Believe) peeking out from behind her. To finish off this card, I used some Calypso Coral Ruffled ribbon and also added a cute scallop rolled rose  and a leaf from the 2 Step Bird Punch. 
I took inspiration from two challenges, the first was the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, which was a great sketch this week (see below), and the second was the ColourQ Challenge, which I don't participate in weekly, but try to have a play when I am inspired :) 
Ok, that's all from me tonight, 
Happy Stamping!
