Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Challenge - June 2016 - Ready for my close up

It is time for another challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

The challenge for June 2016 is "READY FOR MY CLOSE UP" ie you can use any Ching-Chou Kuik image that is the head/face only OR you can crop one of her images to be the head/face only.

Even though I am in the Blog Design Team I have decided to play along as well.
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Hello Magnolia".
As you can see I have cropped the image to exclude virtually all of her dress.  Ching-Chou Kuik is fine with people cropping her images but not all digital artists will allow this.

I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers and made a delicate background with my chalks.

The backing papers are from my stash including some from magazines.

I have finished the card off with some fluted wired edged ribbon, lace, die-cut sentiments, Nuvo pearl drops, spotty organza ribbon, pearl brad and I have made some flowers to match with a stamp/die set from a crafty friends with the layers being held together with brads.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
