Ruby pearls in her hair

Hello everyone I hope you are all having a great weekend, I planned to have good crafty one but at the mo it's going very slowly nothing seems to be getting done.
But on that note I have a card for you that has been in the making for over a week I have had to stop and start it for one reason or another and have just got it finished (the glue is still wet)
A few weeks ago I very lucky to win a challenge and the prize was  some images from of course I had a hard decision of picking which images to have  but I bet a lot of you can guess one the ones I picked due to the title of this post and you would be right it would have been silly of me not get it as it's just adorable

 All paper are freebies and have been distressed and matted onto each other (grey onto a red grain effect) then inked with iced spruce and barn door
I made the cute little tag and embossed the heart then while the embossing powder was still wet added some iridescent glitter
The sentiment was made on my computer and inked with barn door also

the image was coloured with my ever faithful promarkers colours used are

Blush, soft peach, sandstone (skin)
Cloud blue, cornflower (birdies)
Fire wood, cappuccino, shale, burnt umber, umber (hair)
Warm grey 5 (shading)
Ruby, Chilli red, red rooster (dress)
 Ruby red and rouge liquid pearls

 I coloured the gems with berry red PM  and used red satin ribbon from my stash

 finished off with an insert, I kept this one pretty simple plain white just bringing the line art into it to tie it together then inked the edges

well that is my card for today I will leave you with an arty view of image and a list of challenges I would like to enter it into
