Pink and Cream How Sweet You Are Gatefold

Here is a card made using my much-neglected K&Co papers. I've hardly used them since I got my Basic Grey papers, but decided these went well with this image.

The How Sweet You Are image, from Sarah Kay/Stampavie, was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured with Copic Sketch markers:
  •  Hair: E35, E39, E57
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Hat: E43, E31
  • Top/Hat Band: G12, BV31, R20
  • Dungarees: B21, B24, B93
  • Patches: R20, BV31
  • Duckling: Y00, Y08, Y17, YR02
  • Grass: YG17, G12, G14
 The corners of the image panel were rounded using the large XCut corner rounder punch and matted onto a panel of pink paper and a panel of cream card, the corners of which were punched with the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner punch.

A square gatefold card was created from cream card and panels of the fritillary paper from the K&Co Somerset paper pad were punched with the Eyelet Lace corner punch and matted onto the pink paper. Strips of the harlequin paper from the same paper pad were matted onto the pink paper and adhered across the panels.

The image panel was attached to the left gate of the card. The sentiment circle, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set, was stamped onto white card using ColorBox Old Rose pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder. The sentiment was die cut with a circle die and matted onto a circle of pink paper and a big scalloped circle cut from cream card, all die cut with Nestabilities.

A cream Prima paper flower was colour tinted with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink. The small button image from the Papermania Clare Curd Doodles stamp set was stamped onto the pink paper using the Old Rose ink, clear embossed and cut out. Cream embroidery thread was knotted through the pierced holes and the image was then matted onto a cream circle and added in the centre of the flower. The flower was then added to the corner of the image panel.

Here are the challenges I am entering this card into:
