Circle Book Card for a Colleague

Someone at work wanted something special for her daughter. She's just finished her A levels and is hoping to go to university after the summer. She's got dreams of writing screenplays, and when asked what her favourite activities of the last few years were, answered, 'Drama, singing, football and skateboarding'. So, armed with that, I set about finding images which would let me make a special card and box for her.

And here's what I finally came up with!

Here, you can see the front of the card, and the box I made to go with it. The schoolgirl image was kindly drawn for me by the very generous Eiglas, and coloured with Promarkers. The background papers on the box lid are from Panda Bear Designs. The drama mask image is from Dulemba. Both the box and the front of the card have the recipient's name on them, but I've brushed them out of the photos.

A view of the open card from above

Here's the first of the 'scenes'. The images here, were again drawn by Eiglas, and coloured with Promakers. The background of the walls and the floor were generated from textures available in Namo Web Editor. The 'Music' sign was generated using Photoshop Elements.

And the Skateboarding scene. The image this time is by Hope Jacare, and again coloured with Promarkers. The sky is by Panda Bear Designs, and the sign was generated in Photoshop Elements.

And the Art scene:
The artist is from Sassy Cheryl, again coloured with Promarkers. The easel was compiled in Namo Web Canvas and added to the background, and the Art sign was again compiled in Photoshop Elements.

And the final scene is 'Football' using an image from Digistamp Boutique, again coloured with Promarkers. The sky is again from Panda Bear Designs, and the sign was generated in Photoshop Elements. I included the badge of a team she plays for, but I've brushed out the detail in the photo to preserve privacy.
And finally, a close up of the image.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz where the theme is 'fancy folds',
Just Add Ink where they want us to use some colouring method. (Most backgrounds are computer-printed, but all the girls are coloured with Promarkers.)
Challenge up your Life where they want circles,

My Time to Craft where they want cards with more than one image,
My Grafico where anything goes
A Spoonful of Sugar where they want ribbons and bows,
Everybody Art Challenge where anything goes
Passion for Promarkers where the theme is 'Park Life' (Two scenes - the skateboarding and the football are park themed - hope that's ok.)
