Happy Birthday Lisa

Its my friend (and work collegue) Lisa's birthday today and I set myself the daunting task of making a card for her.
Why daunting I hear you ask (lol). Well, not only is it traditional for all the other girls in the office to sign (and therefore secretly judge) the card, but also Lisa is a fellow cardmaker and a very talented one at that, so that always puts extra pressure on!

So anyway, here it is!

Its my 1st attempt at colouring black hair and although I'm happy with the shading, overall its still a little too grey for my liking. But I'll keep practicing!

The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp called Strike A Pose and I've coloured her in with my ProMarkers. The DP is MME quite contrary (free with a mag). The punched edge is done with a Fiskars punch and everything else is from my stash.

All comments welcome. Thanks for looking
