For a Special Lady at Dream Valley

Hi Folks
Second challenge post for today.  Again, this should have been posted yesterday but blogger decided not to play.
It is time for a new fortnightly challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges.  Our sponsor for the fortnight is the wonderful Saturated Canary and the winner will receive a gift voucher to the value of $10.

Our theme for this fortnight is 'FOR A SPECIAL LADY'.  You can create anything you like as long as it fits in with the theme.

The design team were lucky enough to be able to work with an image from Saturated Canary.  I chose the adorable Orchard Love and made a birthday card.

The image was coloured using promarkers and then matted onto some black cardstock.  The papers were all in my stash box.  I believe they were a freebie in a magazine.  And yes, I know that the backing paper has cherries on it and the image is apples but didn't have any papers with apples.  It's still fruit though lol.  For embellishments I used a couple of ribbons at the bottom, some prima flowers, memory box dies, pearls, little prima butterflies and pearls.
If you want a treat pop over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the projects from the design team using Saturated Canary images.  Such awesome work from some very talented teamies.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Saturated Canary - Happy Birthday
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - Saturated Colours (hope this fits but if not please delete)
Paper Sundaes - Ribbon and pearls

Looking forward to seeing all your creations for that special lady.
