One Card - Three Challenges

Well this card covers three challenges :
Secret Crafter - set by Mandy which is to Brads or Eyelets or both
Dotties World - set by Juliet to add a charm to your project,
can be anything as long as it dangles!!
Colour Create - Week 15 colours Blue and Green optional extra to include paper piecing
My friend at work wanted me to make a card for her friend
but it needed to include short hair, shopping and visa cards!
This gave me a problem as the images I had of girls shopping all had long hair
Then I hit a brain wave (this doesn't happen often)
I used the image of Holly shopping used the crop bit in word, then I used an image of Madison cropped her so she was only a head and added to Hollys body.
Now I had my shopping girl with short hair (hope it was ok to do this?)
I coloured her using my Tria Markers, and thenmatted and layer her onto some green dotty paper. The background image of Visa cards was from Google and I changed the colour to blue in word. I then used eyelets to attach the mats together and two eyelets I could put ribbon throughfor the charms. The charms were again an image from Google shrunk and then printed two for each side, this way they have an image whichever way they hang.
The ribbon was sandwich between the two mini visa and passed through the eyelet.
Words done on my Brother labeller.
Thanks for looking
