Her Signature Look

A new customer found me online. "I want to order a custom-made card for my bestie for her 30th" she wrote to me. "I would definitely like a picture of her. They're my favourite style of your cards!"
So, a card for her bestie it was! Her signature look is wearing a black thin strap singlet and dark sunglasses, I was told. Her hair should be up in a bun and she should be wearing gold earrings and a gold necklace with grandmas ring on it.
The birthday girl plays netball, makes macaroons and she loves framed black and white photos. Her favourites are the famous image of Israel's first Prime Minster David Ben Gurion doing a handstand on Tel Aviv beach (apart from being a great thinker, Tel Aviv residents said it was very common to see Ben Gurion doing exercise or yoga in his house’s front or at the beach), and of Einstein with his tongue out
I asked my customer to find out what position her friend plays in netball and I checked with another netball playing friend of mine what colour bib the Tel Aviv team wears (I do enjoy a bit of research!). She plays wing attack, so I added a blue bib with WA on it to the card, along with a white netball and the aforementioned black and white pictures. I have shown the birthday girl holding a plate of pastel coloured macaroons, and she is wearing all the gold jewellery my customer mentioned.
"Sara LOVED the card" my customer told me. "I love the glasses and jewellery! And the picture frames!" she said. She's already been back to me for more cards.
