Sketch N Stash challenge 111

Good Morning I hope you had a great weekend and are keeping well, don't laugh, the door knob broke on Heathers bedroom door and we couldn't get in to the room, we now have to wait for the council to come and repair it, I hope they come today or she won't have any clean clothes to wear.
It is Monday and time for new challenge at Sketch N Stash.
Here is the sketch, we have the optional theme of embossing, so for my card I have used this gorgeous Elisabeth Bell digi called Little Rapunzel, I have coloured her with promarkers and fleximarkers , Spellbinder hexagon die cut, I used the butterfly embossing folder that came as freebie with paper craft essentials mag. corrugated card, ribbon and flower are all from stash.
We have two sponsors this fortnight firstly My Mum's Craft Shop is offering one of our lucky winners a £10.00 gift voucher for the store.
We are also sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads and she is also offering another lucky winner a $10.00 voucher to spend in her store.
Now to be in with a chance of winning, you need to follow the sketch, you can flip it add extra flowers and embellishments but we must be able to recognise our original sketch, and the embossing theme is optional.
I do hope you will join in with us, I look forward to seeing your cards.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
