Anyone Fancy A Cuppa?

Evening all!

How is everyone?  I hope you are all getting better weather than we are.  I had a friend over visiting from Melbourne and we were talking about the weather and she said that it's not much different to theirs at home now - I had to point out to her that that's her winter and is supposed to be our summer!!  I never really used to care if we got any sun, being a winter baby, but after being on a few sunny holidays lately I can really see the benefit of a bit of sun.  So come on clouds, shift!!
Anyway, I'm sharing a card tonight that I made a long time ago, for my sisters birthday, and forgot to show.

The image is by Saturated Canary called Madhatress.  I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E49,39R59. Dress; YG95,93,91,Y15,13,11,RV34,32,R00,39,27,24,BG09,49,45.  I also used a red Sakura stardust pen on the wee heart on the tag and some clear Sakura gelly roll pen on her shoes.

I also used Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap distress inks around the image.
The papers are My Minds Eye, Gertie Papers.  The sentiment is by Lili of the valley from the greetings postmarks set.

I used a corner rounder punch on all the layers and the image.  The ribbon and swarovski's are from my stash.

The inside uses the same papers as the front.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
