Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 127

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 127: anything goes with a twist ... for a lady/girl. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of others in the team and join in our challenge with your feminine creations.

I used Sparkle n sprinkle Vivian hat lady, kindly supplied by the sponsor, colouring with spectrum noir papers. I created the background with various paper offcuts, the main one covering the card blank is a very iridescent paper that changes colour according to how the light catches it. The frame is an old Kanban one, Hobbycraft flowers and a few pearls and sentiment.

This card has a Happy Birthday insert - was commissioned by a friend.
