Sunflower Birthday!

Hello Blogging Friends!

I made this little card for a coworker and I love the way it turned out!  The colors are bright, but yet have a fall feel in the image and the golden flowers.  I used a sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy.

I colored the image on cryogen paper using my copics.  I used distress inks around the image to take away some of the white color.  The paper is by Recollections, it is a new pack I picked up last week and it is so cute.  It really reminds me of MME paper.  Of course I finished her off with some flowers, a pearly brad and a button.  The inside was plain so that all my coworkers could put their birthday wishes inside, so I did not photograph it.

Copics Used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13
Hair:  E50, E51, E53, E55
Dress:  BG11, BG72, BG75, Y11, Y21, Y35, R00, R02, R05
Shoes:  E21, E25, E27, E29
Flower:  Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24
