Commission Card and DT application!

Hi all,
Well, just saw this in time really.  Kenny K has been having a DT call so I thought I'd give it a go and apply.
I have loved these images for ages now and would dearly love the chance to get to use them more often.
So there are two cards here but it is the first one I shall be entering for the DT call.
This card was made as a commission card for a friend of my DH's.
I had already made her the 65 invitations for the party and this was the follow up card for the Birthday Girl.
Now this image, Club Kid, says 16 year old female teenager to me - what do you think??
So here is the card (A4 size):
The image is coloured with promarkers and prismacolour pencils.  (You can see I put it in a box which I also decorated but forgot to take any pics of! DOH!)
The papers are from Funky Fairy.

The letters are chipboard, which I have inked and clear embossed three times to make them really glossy and shiny. (They are IRL honest!)
The flowers are from my stash and the leaves are hand punched.
The ribbon is from Hobbycraft and the pins were bought from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
This second card was made for my daughter's birthday.  She was forever on the computer updating her iPod and I just thought this image, Download Diva fitted her perfectly.
You will see it is very CAS as she just doesn't do flowers and bows! Sooo not cool! LOL.
I have added red streaks in her hair because DD had red highlights at the time.
So there you go then.  I hope you like my cards.  They both went down really well with the recipients I'm pleased to say.
