Birthday Critters

I feel like I'm cooking with gas this weather ... isn't it great when your mojo co-operates, it definitely makes card making so much easier and quicker!

I used this image so I could have another play with my new skin and hair tone watercolour pencils from Prima.  I love how her hair turned out, but I think I need to be braver and go darker with the skin tones ... she's obviously had a wet winter like me and is in dire need of a bit of a tan ;)

I've used up some pretty scrapsthat have been knocking round my stash for ages, Hurrah.  It still needed a wee something so out came my Taylored Expressions sequins again and it looked so much better.

SUPER cute card! I really love her hair, too. You nailed those highlights! I find that I'm a bit timid, as well, when it comes to skin tones. I'm always afraid to go a little darker, and my images end up looking anemic.
