Birthday

 Hi Everyone, this card was made because I saw a sketch that I liked and chose this lovely image from my files to make it.  It's been in there for a long time and I don't think I have used it. I was going to add a few things, but after colouring the image 4 times, I gave up and was just glad to get it done, but decided maybe it just wasn't good enough. A day or two after, I thought, she's OK and I can still enter the challenge, it's the taking part isn't it? then I took photos and forgot to add the little extras I was going to. In the end I decided to go as it is!

Here she is, such a lovely image. I did a print and cut on the Cameo, then coloured her with DI's. Before I give it to someone I may add a die cut or 2? We'll see.

Good Lord, talk about picky! lol She looks fab! Of course, I don't know why you weren't happy. If you weren't staying in the lines, that does upset me too. And at our age, it happens without mercy or warning, the old hand shake, ugh! I do admire you coloring her skin with inks, that's really why I use the alcohol markers. Have a good week! XOX
