Pretty Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  I have a quick post to share today... got to get going and do stuff!

I wanted to join in the March sketch challenge at Some Odd Girl as I purchased some stamps from there a little while back, but hadn't had a chance to use them.  These girls are super fun to colour!  This one is called Gifty Gwen.

Here's my card:

Here's the sketch:

The papers I used are from Sassafras Lass and American Crafts.  I have coloured Gwen with copics (see pic below).  This time I added some BV000 for shadow on her skin... I'm undecided if I like it or not.  The felt flowers are from Sew Sweet and the brads are from My Mind's Eye.  The crystal is from Webster's Pages and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I cut the tag with my Slice and used a rub on sentiment from Pebbles.  I added Stickles to the prezzie and Glamour Glaze to Gwen's hair clip and Perfect Pearls to her necklace.  Other than that it's pretty simple!

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the Some Odd Girl March Sketch challenge.

Have a lovely day!

Hi Arabella, I appear to have missed a few of your posts - blooming Blogger dashboard playing up again!!

Anyway, goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway! Gorgeous cards, perfect colouring, brilliant papers and just love 'em all!!!

Do wish I could cut out as neatly as you do! I am soooo rubbish at neat cutting round images.

Hope you got your fuses / hoover fixed. Don't envy you trying to learn a new language, I have enough trouble with English!
