Dream Valley For a Special Lady

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with my DT card for our challenge over at Dream Valley this fortnight 'For a Special Lady'. We were given gorgeous digis to use from the lovely Krista Smith at Saturated Canary-aren't we lucky! I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and continued in my practice of black hair! What do you think?
I used Memory Box *I think* papers I have had for ages and never used-but they reminded me of the style of the 1960s and so I coloured her to match these. I used Papermania cardstock as my base, then cut the design paper in strips to make panels on my base. I then made a panel with my Saturated canary beauty on which I placed where I liked her on the card. I used Memory box die cut butterflies, American crafts polka dot ribbon, Anitas glitterations greeting, gems, a 3D butterfly, Wild Orchid crafts roses and card candy as my embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary Challenge: Happy Birthday
Prairie Fairy Fridays: Anything with Flowers
