it was an order for a lady (Sue) at work...a family friend is turning 50 and he hates Ginger hair!!...and because Sue is ginger it was her one requirement..lol
i must admit i'm rather pleased with the result...the image is by Victoria Case ..and the age sentiment is a freebie which you can find here at Bird's Cards the other i did myself :-)

Skin Tones - Ivory, Blush, Dusky Pink & Pastel Pink
Hair - Honeycomb, Burnt Orange & Cocoa
Top/Eyeshadow/Bobble - Duck Egg & Turquoise
Skirt/Bodice - Cool Grey 1-5
