Birthday Girl!


I saw a lot of tutorials for hair colors using Copics on Pinterest.  I came across this one using the colors RV91, RV93, RV95 and RV99.  She called it “sugar plum”.  I really liked it and wanted to try it, so I dug out ‘Lavinia” by  Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  I needed something with lots of hair…lol.   It is a little hard to see the plum color in this picture but it turned out really nice.  Then I went with the color teal for her dress to bring out the color in her hair.  I am using the sketch from Sketch Saturday for the layout of my card.  I used a MS border punch for the background and added some ribbon.  The flowers I found at the dollarama ages ago and never had any use for them.  They look like paper in this picture but they are actually colored metal.  They had a very bright orange center which I removed and replaced with pearls.  Then I added a tiny little pearl for her ear-ring. 


Hope you had a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
