Art Impressions "Birthday Gal" Front & Back Card

The other day my mom asked if I would make a card for her very good friend's birthday that is coming up in Sept.  The one requirement was that it had to be an Art Impression image.  That wasn't such a hard request, since I have quite a few of their stamps.  I just love their images - they are so much fun.  This card was created for the AI challenge #117 People Parade.  Basically, your card needs a person on it, so I pulled out one of my new Art Impressions stamp called "Birthday Gal".  It's one of their Front & Back stamp series that I received as an honorable mention for one of their challenges.  This was the first time I have done a card like this, so it took a little bit of time to get it together since I used multiple layers.  But I figured out some shortcuts, so the next one will go much faster.  First I colored the images with my Copics.  I fussy cut both the front and back and attached them together so she would fit in the window.  I did the same with the windows using AI's Front & Back "Curtain Window".  The curtains were paper pieced using Ki Metro Garden.  The sentiment was from Papertrey Ink's "Bigger Blooms" stamp set.  The white washed wooden panel on the front of the card was from My Minds Eye Dolled Up.  The banners were made using the Ribbon Banner die from Simon Says Stamp with some papers from my stash.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions Challenge #117 People Parade
Challenges For Everybody Challenge #27 - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #21
