A big one!

Morning everyone. Another grey day outside:( I went out last night with hubby and daughter for a meal and movie and so enjoyed myself. I haven't been out for ages so it was a real treat. We went to see the Avengers. It was brilliant though only me and my daughter were laughing outloud. Its full of wise cracks and I absolutely loved it!!
Onto my card. This was made for a friend to give to her friend for her 50th birthday. Kesh is from Mauritius though has lived her for about 20 years now. I used to work with her in school a few years back. So I had to do a darker skin but was pretty pleased with the way it came out. I knew right away what stamp I would use when asked to make the card. Kesh is a right wee party girl but is very chilled and relaxed too so Ladybug Ink Martini Nikki was perfect;)

Stamp -  Ladybug Crafts Ink
Papers - DoCrafts CD
Embellishments - ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, sparkly numbers from stash, name computerised, spellbinders flourished square die
Medium - she is coloured with promarkers and spectrums

I would like to enter this into

Fussy and Fancy - swirls and flourishes
