Fun in the Sun Birthday Card for a Friend

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today I would like to show you a card I made for a friend who’s birthday is yet to come.
Since it is so hot here I did a summer card.

I have had this paper for a long time and I have never used it. I waited for the right card.

I have used a sketch I made myself, on my computer.
Hope you like it!

I used a stamp for Whiff of Joy called, Willow with cocktail.

I colored her with the following Promarkers:
Henna, Terracotta, Spice, Coral and Apricot - for her hair
Blush - for her skin 
Ducky Pink - for the cocktail
Appel and Meadow Green - for the cocktail umbrella and her shoes
Berry Red - for the cherry in her cocktail 
Magenta and Carmine - for her dress
Yellow - for a part of her dress
Rose Pink - for her purse 
Cool Grey 1 - for around the stamp.

I stuck a pink flowery ribbon with a bow at the bottom of the card 

And some more of my beautiful flowers in the top right corner.

I would also like to take part in the following challenges:
