Happy Birthday, Chica!

I made this card for my good friend, Angela, as it was her bday on the 16th and we were getting together last night. Now, it was tough to make this card, one b/c I'm in awe of her talent and 2, b/c I would be giving it to her in front of the designer, LOL. This is the first time for me to ink up WS - Megan and I seriously suck at coloring curly hair - going to have to get some tips on that in the future. DP is also from TGF - Happy Anyaversary pack. Thankfully, she loved it and said she doesn't get many handmade cards b/c everyone says they don't want to give them to her b/c she's SO good --- haha, true, but I'm glad I didn't let that stop me. I love giving my handmade cards to people I know and love b/c I truly put a little bit of myself into each one and I find it more fun to design a card when I actually know the recipient. For me, it's SO hard to design a good card when I'm just going to sell it to someone randomly. I don't know if any of you feel the same way.

I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch and also this weeks theme at Cupcake Craft Challenges - two challenge cards in one - now that's been a rare thing for me lately but it was fun and fitting as I needed a bday card and the sketch is just awesome.

Thanks for looking!
