Pollycraft Challenge # 51, Forever Friends Challenge Blog, Passion for Promarkers # 59 & The ABC Challenge

I wasn't feeling too well this morning, so all in all, I'm quite pleased with how this card has turned out.
I've followed a few challenges and fitted them into this card so here goes:
1 Pollycraft Challenge # 51 - follow sketch given (pictured below)
2) Forever Friends Challenge Blog - Stitching Challenge
3) Passion For Promarkers # 59 - Give us a Laugh"
4) The ABC Challenge - Y is for You and Me 

I made this a large card, as I accidentally printed the image out a little bit larger than I meant to. I used quite a few promarkers to colour the image, baby pink, pastel yellow, peach, buttercup, baby blue, berry red, terracotta, pastel green, lilac, ice grey 2, yellow and satin for the skin.
I used some bronzed effect pearl gems to adorn the corner of the image and I drew in some stitching around the backing papers and the image itself.
The backing papers and card I bought from The Paper Mill.
To include it in the "Give us a Laugh" challenge, I typed out a sentiment saying "you don't have to be mad to live here, but it helps!"
I added some satin effect sticky ribbon at the bottom and either side of the ribbon I added a gold peel off.
I found some X peel offs, which are supposed to represent kisses I think but I thought they may also represent cross stitching so I placed a few of those on the ribbon.
I hope you like my card. Thank you for looking.
