Card for a special lady

Here is a card that I have made for a special lady.  I was asked for blues and the feeling of spring.  Spring makes me think of the arrival of new animals/birds, the arrival of flowers/greenery and lovely blue skies.  The image I have used a Delicious Doodles image called "Raven Goddess".  I have coloured her in with my Graph'it pens.
The backing papers I have used are from a new collection from Bearly Mine Designs called "Mixed Media".  I love these papers as there is so much going on in them but they are totally flat.

I have used my Tim Holtz distressing tool on all the mounts, image and the backing paper and inked them all with a Salty ocean Versamagic chalk ink pad.
The card has been finished off with a doily, die-cut bird cage and birds (all inked with the Salty Ocean ink pad), some flowers punched out of some turquoise blue Bearly Mine Mini Dots backing paper (and to add some interest for the upper layer I have laid over some turquoise washi tape before punching), gems, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, ribbon and a Hobby House pearl embellishment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

QKR Stampede - A little birdie told me
Glitter n Sparkle - Use some blue
Pile it On - Pretty hair
