Autumn Faye on Toadstool

Hello all, I hope you are well.
I am having quite an emotional week as my daughter moved out yesterday, I thought I was prepared for it but once it arrived I felt really choked up. I feel like she was a newborn, I blinked, and then suddenly she's all grown up and she's moving away!
Anyway, I think I have been crafting lots lately to try and keep my mind off it all. This card I made as I had coloured the image quite a while ago and found it recently when I was sorting through some of my images. I have seen lots of challenges lately for autumn shades so thought it was about time I made her into a card.
I used a digi stamp called Faye on Toadstool from Pink Gem and she was one of the first digi images I owned. I had coloured her in autumny shades so went through my papers and came across my Wild Rose Studio Milton pack which I thought went quite well with her colours.  I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and cut a patterned edge with my scissors ( I have a drawer full of different scissors so must try to use them more!)
I punched and layered some little hearts to carry on the theme on her dress and added a wooden heart from Hobbycraft. I glittered her little hair bow and added glossy accents to her shoe bells - it's not so easy to see that on the photo though. A paper flower from the pound shop (I changed the colour of the gem in the middle though) finished it off-hope you like it.

I would like to enter her into the following challenges;
