Ginger Dancing

Hello all, I do hope this finds you all well.
I can't believe that I only have a few days of the half term left-I haven't done very much but it's been lovely not having to go to work and do what I want instead!
I have been making some cards with some lovely images from Time for Tea that I won in a recent challenge. This one is called Ginger Dancing and I just love her-I've coloured her with my Promarkers and I've used papers from both Paper Cellar and Marianne Designs Twinset and Pearls.
I had a bit of a eureka moment with this card-
Since the Papermill closed I have been struggling to find decently priced coloured card lately-I bought two packs from Amazon recently but when they arrived they were not the right shade at all-I was so disappointed. Then when I made this card I couldn't find any darker green card that matched this image in my stash and I suddenly had the idea to colour the edges of white card with my Promarkers in the same shade as my image-easy right!!-just why hadn't I thought of it before??
I added a little wooden heart and some coloured paper flowers, some card candi and sequins. The sentiment is computer generated:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
