Kindness is beautiful - All Dressed Up Challenge

Afternoon - I hope you are having a lovely Easter Bank Holiday! Today is also the start of a new challenge at All Dressed Up.  I have used this beautiful image called Party Season. 
I wanted to make a special card so used this stunning gold wood effect paper from Jen Hadfield Homemade collection and the foiled greeting is from Homemade Quotes.

I made the card base by simply folding the front panel back in half and the band is folded the opposite way. Its very simple but effective. I covered the band with paper from MFT watercolour wash brights and used a little gold mirri to edge the panel. I used gold pen on the girls belt, purse and top. I used Olympic Gold Cosmic shimmer pigment to colour the middle top and it really does shine like gold! I used a Woodware punch to make some leaves and added a resin flowers that I edged with Gold stickles. Finally I added a couple of puffy Gold Hearts from Freckled fawn.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Blue Greys 1 - 5
Buttercup, Pineapple Crush, Sleigh Bells and Raw Sienna.
Saffron, Cinnamon,Cocoa, Saddle Brown & Walnut
Baby Pink, Cocktail Pink, Pink Lobster & Red Sweater.
Meadow Green, Apple, Leaf Green & Forest Green.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Fussy &Fancy - Fancy folds
Cardz 4 Galz - Handbags & Gladrags
Fairy Tale Challenge - More than one fold
Love to Scrap - Girls rule
Naughty or nice - Three of something
