Colour Create with Papertake Weekly and Charisma is as easy as ABC

As I was looking through my stamp collection, I came across this little Elisabeth Bell cutie.  She is called "Little Nurse" and was produced by Whiff of Joy.  Poor little thing had never seen ink!    I coloured her with Promarkers and Copics and she is mounted on some K&Co Julienne papers with a Prima flower and two little crochet flowers that my Mum made for me.  The leaves are an MS punch.    The "Get well soon" tiny sentiment is by Stamps Away.  I love these and I should use them more often - they fit really well with my Stampin Up tiny tag punch.   The "Just for you" sentiment is by SU and is used in a new Nestie banner.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
it's "anything goes" at  Charisma Cardz and Papertake WeeklyThe ABC Challenge is "C is for crochet flowers" and the challenge at Colour Create (which I'm stretching I know) is for "burgundy, gold, cream and dimension" - I haven't used any actual gold but my banner, leaves and tag are a goldy colour - I hope that's okay.  It's a terrible quality photo for some reason.  The flowers on the paper are much more burgundy in real life.
