Birthday Card

A family birthday card from me today using very bright colours!

I wanted bright red hair and a green dress and then found the fabby papers in my stash.  I've coloured the image from artbymiran called Gracie with my spectrum noir markers which I've had for around 4 months and love experimenting with colour combos:

Hair: BG9, EB4, DR7, DR3, CR8, CR10, OR1, FS9
Dress: GG5, JG7, JG3, BT4, BT2

I've used dies from xcut, memory box and Marianne Designs to pretty the card up along with flowers and gems from my stash

I made this into an easel card and embossed the under layer to keep it simple compared to the rest of the card....

A little close-up of Gracie :)

This is entered into the following challenges;

artbymiran facebook may challenge : anything goes with ribbon or bow
crafty sentiments challenge : flowers
