Commissioned Birthday Card

This is my first commissioned card in a long time as I had to take some time out to sort out things in relation to my late mum.  I was asked to make a card for a lady's friend who likes a tipple and the colour blue.  Obviously a Bugaboo image sprung to mind.  She is called Ruby Tidbits - Tequila.  She looks quite a character doesn't she?  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and followed a tutorial by the ever so talented Coops for adding a dotted texture around an image.  I didn't have khaki so I had to use satin so mine has come out a bit differently but I like the effect.  For my card I have followed the CRAFT Challenge sketch.  The backing papers are Papermania and plain cardstock and dark blue vellum.  I cut the image out with a Nestabilities die.  The card is finished off with some star gems. gingham ribbon, circle brad and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.  Te feedback for the card - the recipient was in stitches when she saw the card and had many a tale to tell about tequilas!!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
CRAFT Challenge - Sketch

I love cutting out images using my Nestabilities - makes it so simple.

Well done.
