Feeling Green in a Sketch

I decided to combine two challenges in one with this card although the actual sketch I have interpreted slightly differently to how it initially looks:

The sketch is this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge, and the colour scheme, set by Jozza is from Daring Card Makers which is:

The dare is feeling green. I want to see lots of green on your cards in any shade you like

The image is from Charmed Cards and Crafts and is the new Holly and Madison download and this one has been printed as pre-coloured (well, I thought the dress matched the papers perfectly!) I've lightly glittered her red bag (mainly because that is the only coloured glitter glue that I have which does not blob everywhere!) The backing papers are from It's Funky Too which I found in my off cut box - I am trying to use up all my odds and ends as much as I can without printing new papers each time.

The layered flowers I have cut using the Cuttlebug flowers die and are mulberry paper, which, surprisingly, I had in the right shade! I've doodled around the edges of the card and backing papers and also the flowers.

Sentiment is a Studio G acrylic bargain stamp stamped with Sugarloaf Green Whispers ink.
