18th Birthday Card

I have my daughters birthday card to share with you today.

I just love this image of JJ.

This is in fact a Christmas image but I cut off the holly and added the 18 sentiment over the berries.I coloured JJ with my promarkers (black,ivory,berry red,ruby,tan,pastel blue,pastel green and blush)cut out and attached to my card.

The sketch I followed is from Sketch Saturday. and I used the colours red,black and blue to co-ordinate with the colours of JJ. I added 3 black gems and a birthday peel off to finish the card.

I'm enetering this card into:-
