Happy Birthday Vicky!

My lovely, crafty friend, Vicky, is forty today and this is the card I made for her.  She's a fan of the Gorjuss Girls so I decided to use this lil' cutie.  Sorry for the dodgy photo, my camera seemed to have a bit of a nervous breakdown over photographing this card, it only seemed to want to focus on the bow rather than the image!  She's been coloured with Promarkers and the background was done with Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks, using a dusting brush.
The Monday nighters made spring cards the Monday before last, I has so much fun making mine that I decided to make another one.  Just like buses, I hadn't made one in ages and then two come along at once!
After colouring the image, I raided my mahoosive scrap box and die cut a load of leaves with Spellbinders dies, added a border punched with an EK Success punch, and finished with a ribbon, a bow and a stamped and bejeweled sentiment.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
