A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Female Birthday

We have a new challenge for you today at A Gem of a Challenge, this fortnight the theme is "Female Birthday", so nice and easy to play along with.  I chose to use Flower Power Emma from the Pink Gem store, colouring her with my ever faithful Promarkers.  I cut out the topper and the frame for it with Spellbinders Adorning Rectangles dies.

The glorious patterned papers are from a Craftwork Cards pad called Countryside; they were a birthday present from one of my crafty friends, along with a bag of the matching Card Candi, a piece of which can be seen on the sentiment tag.  The whole pad is in my fave colour combo of pink and green, so you can expect to see these papers popping up a lot!
To embellish, I added some lime green grosgrain ribbon and bow, a sentiment tag, cut with a Sizzix die and stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp, a flower made with Sue Wilson Cornflower dies, and foliage made with a Sizzix die.

 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
