Lil Patch of Crafty Friends challenge 32

Hello all I hope you are all well. Todays post is to let you all know that a new challenge has begun today over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
Our challenge runs for two weeks and as always it has an Anything Goes theme so that gives you loads of scope to come on over and join us, we'd love to see you there.
Huge thanks go to our sponsors who for this challenge are:

Prize ~ 7 Images


Prize ~ 3 Images

For my card I got to choose this lovely image from Lemon Shortbread called Islander Flower Girl which can be found here.
I ended up making two cards for this challenge myself. The first card is a traditional type birthday card but when I'd made it I had another idea which I just had to make so this one is actually the second card I made. (I'll show you the first one in my next post!!)
I found this fab background on a free clipart website and thought it matched the image perfectly so I layered the image digitally and then coloured her in with promarkers to match the background. 
I also found some images of shells which I fussy cut and layered onto the image using some raised pads. I punched some little flowers to add too and the sentiment is computer generated which I then layered using some Nellie Snellen oval dies. I finished off with some glitter to her dress and a couple of little pearls:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
