A Simple Birthday

Hi!  I wanted to make a simple birthday card that took minimal coloring and time.  I followed the current sketch from My Favorite Things

Maybe I followed the sketch a bit loosely but I think I have the major components on there.  I used the cute little girl from Pure Innocence Hello Cupcake.  I wanted to try coloring on kraft cardstock.  It took less time and I kind of like how it's a bit muted.

There's some glaze on the cherry and some stickles too.

This card is for the following challenges:
All That Scraps Weekly Wednesday Challenge (Birthday)
My Favorite Things WSC11
Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog (Keep it Simple)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog (Birthday)

I've been a little obsessed lately with embossing/debossing from PTI's challenge.  I'll hopefully share some of that tomorrow.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Your card is adorable! I have been admiring the colored images on kraft. But have not yet dared into pencil coloring. Did you use copics?

I love your use of the kraft cs, such a cute image and fabulous use of colours with the gorgeous papers.

So happy you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge,

This is so cute. Love how you colored her face. I always have a hard time with face, and this looks really nice.
