Thank you for foiling me!

So I was going to some foils in my hair from a friend of mine who is a hair stylist.  We figured it would disguise my grey hair.  I was so excited about it that I wanted to make my friend a card to reflect my big day.  And what better way to do that then to embellish a doll head from Whimsie Doodles with "foils".  The trick was to print two identical images and colour the hair of both.  Then cut strands of hair from one reattach at the roots and slip some tiny pieces of tin foil under the strands.  I also added of 3D foam squares to make the strands look like they are lifted over the foils.
Here's the before
