Happy 21st Birthday (commission)

hello friends, followers and fellow crafters.
thanks for dropping by today to see my latest card. This is another commission card this time for a 21st birthday. The spec given was red hair, make up, glam and sparkly.

So I used this fabulous image which was a freebie on the Saturated Canary website. I wasn't too sure if she was a bride or a princess. But I think she is stunning. So thanks to Krista of Saturated Canary for sharing the image. 

As always I have coloured the image in with my trusty copics. I think I maybe should have done the ribbon around her hair in a different colour but the spec was red hair and the ribbon is a different shade of red. I hope its clear enough to see.

here is a close up of her hair.

I have added tiny gems to her hair and to the centre of the purple flowers. I gave her ruby red lips and put glossy accents on them to make them shiny!
The swirl die was a kind donation from a fellow Docrafter called Chris of ChrisAndCat fame. Thanks very much Chris. I simply stuck this to the side of the image on the backing paper and used a punch for the butterfly in pearlescent paper.
The wording was printed in a font called Beautiful onto cardstock and matted onto red cardstock.

I hope you all like it and I would really appreciate any comments good or bad or any suggestions. I read each and every one of them.

thanks for stopping by - hope to see you again very soon
