Sugar Bowl Challenge #16

Been having a lot of spare time on my hands since I've been out of college, so what better thing to do than to join challenges?? This one is for the Sugar Bowl Challenge #16.

Here's the sketch:
Here's my creation!
Close up of Gorjuss Girl and doodling (lines and dots):
This was my first time trying to add some shadow/shading underneath to ground my image (as wonderfully suggested by Diana from Magnolia-licious). Though I tried, I do not think it turned out too well. Does anyone have any tips and suggestions? I color with Copics, so perhaps someone can help me with improving in this department. Also, I am wondering what others use for gluing their ribbons. Here there are four layers of ribbon: brown, cream, green, and a creamy/clear layer on top. It was difficult to get the glue from showing. Let me know if you have any suggestions! Thanks so much!
