Here is my creation.

I coloured the image in using ProMarkers. I wanted to keep the colour palette quite 'sweet' so chose to work with pinks.

After I had coloured the image, I worked on the background. I cut a piece of card slightly bigger than the image and embossed it using a swirl pattern embossing folder. I then inked over it using distress inks and an inking brush to create a softer look. 

I then cut out the face area from the frame, inked the background with Distress Ink and stuck it flat to the embossed background. I then stuck the frame part back over the top with double layered foam pads to create a raised effect. I wanted the image to have the effect of someone looking at someone, looking in a mirror. (If that makes any sense, ha ha?)

I wanted the raised frame to be effective and didn't want to take the focus off it by adding lots of other embellishments to the card. So I decided not to add any 'extras' and decided to use a scalloped edge card rather than a straight edge card. I added some inking around the edge of the scalloped card before adhering the embossed background and main image.
