Something Colourful

I came across this layout for a sketch challenge at Totally Papercrafts and decided to have a bash at it. I love using sketches to get the creative juices flowing! 
The image is part of a set from Personal Impressions which was a bargain at £2 in my local craft shop.  I've coloured it with Promarkers and added beads for eyes and a little red gem for a cherry.
I've been trying to revisit some of my older stash to try to use up some of my papers before my craft room disappears under a sea of paper!  The cupcake paper is Dovecraft from their Piece of Cake range and the pink spotty paper, which is truly geriatric, is Papermania.
The ribbons are from Mei Flower.  I always stock up from them at the SECC in October because they have such a wide selection at great prices.
The buttons were made with a Woodware punch which is an old favourite.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Totally Papercrafts - #102 - sketch
Cupcake Inspirations - #146
