Africa inspired

Hello friends, I am up with a simple card inspired by Africa!

I have an Italian friend, who grew up in Ghana, Africa. She is an amazing artist and she creates awesome African themed artworks. I have taken my inspiration from her work. She works with African textiles and beads on her work.
I am not that great of an artist like her, so I have just doodled the woman and colored her to look like a silhouette, and then I doodled the head-piece. I used fine tip markers to color and add details to the design.
I also did some sewing by adding the sewed beads to the neck to create a necklace.
Sentiments are from Uniko and Altenew, I finished off with a few jewels.
