Challenges; See post for more details

Hi all, well I got to play with some of my dies and this one is the fleur di lis from spellbinder nestabilities. The image is from Kelly's Kids which came in a bundle from one stitch. Phew, lucky I remembered all of that,lol.
I kept it simple a the colours and die seem to speak for themselves. I always colour with Promarkers, and I colour before and then cut out the die. I really don't think it makes much difference either way. I do like when some of the image is cut out from the die, I love the interest it creates.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
