Looking Gorgeous from All Dressed Up

Today is the start of a new challenge at All Dressed Up blog  and the theme is always anything goes as long as you use an All dressed up image - and there are some beautiful digital images to make lovely cards. For my DT card I have used an image Looking Gorgeous from All Dressed up.
I was asked to make this card for a friend at work to give her sister and thought this image was perfect for a 40th. 

To make this card I used paper (which is Flittered!) from a pad I got in The Range. It doesn't seem to have a name but the make is Deco Time. I mounted this on Black card and then used a Lawn Fawn Cloud die on black card also and glued this behind the image panel. I mounted the image onto the patterned card using chunky 3D foam so it sits high.
I used some Clear gems on the necklace along with some Diamond stickles to add details on the flowers. The 40 are Glittery thickers called Eclair from American Crafts and I used black foam letters from Hobbycraft to spell out sister.

I used these Promarkers & Flexmarkers  -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice, with Baby pink cheeks.
Lips - Antique pink & Baby pink
Hair -  Buttercup, Pineapple Crush & Sleigh Bells
Braid - Aquamarine, Oasis & Island Lagoon.
Leaves - Leaf Green, Grass & Lush Green
Flowers - Gold, Orange & Bright Orange, Magenta, Red Sweater & Antique Pink, Slate, Baby pink & Antique Pink.
