Cow Girl

Hi all I have this card to show you that I made for my Mum to give my son on his 21st , I have several challenges I would like to enter this one into which are:
Here is my card and a few photos.
I have used an A3 card stock to make this card /gift holder, so it is rather large and I will be making a box for it later.  I have gone for the black and white colour combo and used promarkers, it took me quite a few hours to do the shading as I liked but I am quite pleased with the finished product.  I have used Ivory and Pastel Beige to highlight around the figure then used a white gel pen for the dotty effect as shown by Nic aka Coops, who I would also like to thank for the advice on the colours to use for the shading.
I have used SU 12x12 papers, with a strip I had left over I used the contrasting side for the die cut corners, I added a black ribbon bow and gems. 

I have made a holder on the inside which I have highlighted with black ribbon, I used a DL envelope from my stash, stamped 'Just For You' on so my mum can put some money in and added a verse which I drew my own frame around., to match the one on the front image. 
I hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, hugs to all see you later.
EDITED: I have had some enquiries as to where I got the image from it came from the Digi images at Victoria  Case I am not sure if the site is still in existance as I bought this one a few years ago now.
