Commissioned birthday card

Morning all I thought I would share the other card I had to make for the girl in the PO.
 Now like I said I had very little to go on it was a 50th Birthday and for a female, that was it and my mojo at an all time low (again) and she needed them to tomorrow yikesssssss.
Thinking cap pressed firmly down this is what I came up with

The card is 8x8". All papers are freebies from pixel scrapper I just distressed and inked with weathered wood and stormy sky then matted  onto white card.

 The image is pearls in my hair by a day for daisies I love her.
I have coloured her in with promarkers
colours used are

Sandstone, soft peach, blush (skin)
Pastel beige, raw sienna, burnt sienna, walnut, henna, fire wood (hair)
Sea mist, denim blue, pebble blue, grey green (dress)

I had a bit of trouble with her hair I couldn't get the colour I wanted which is why I used so many but I'm happy with the end result.
Then when it was all put together I added blue and white liquid pearls around the image.

 I added loads of lace detailing and pearls and put flat backed pearls in her hair then I also added them to the flower arrangements

 I printed out the digi stamp greeting and celebrate ticke and inked with the same DI as I used on the papers and added a little blue fussy bow and a couple of extra pearls. then when it was all put together I added some turquoise stickles around the edges of the papers.

 here you can see the flowers more closely with pearls a berries

Finally for the insert

 I digitally layered the papers for the insert and added the image onto the outer bottom corners added the verse then when printed I coloured the image using Derwent blendable pencils

 and there you have it my card for today done hope you like it.
Thanks for popping over and I will see you soon.
I am entering this into the following challenges Bling Lace & pearls  Girly  Distressing ATG
