Jen's Birthday card!

Hello all! 
I am here today to share the card I have made for Jen's birthday! Now as most of you will know, she loves crafting, especially colouring, and she has taught me most of what I know about it! So when I saw this image, I just knew it was perfect for her card this year! :)

This is the gorgeous Colour Me Wonderful from Saturated Canary!
I have coloured her with Promarkers and used Polychromo pencils to soften and texturise her hair, after I coloured it using only fine nibs on my PM's. It takes ages to do this way, but it really gives a natural look! 
Now the interesting thing is that I printed the image in 'draft' setting on my printer, so I only have very soft outlines to the image. I have tried it once before, and after seeing a challenge to do just that this week, I thought I'd try it again! I really love how it looks! It has a much softer, more realistic look to it. I suspect I will be trying this more often! :)
The papers are Spring Jubilee by Pink Paislee...magazine freebies I think. The butterflies are Martha Stewart and the lace is from my stash. 
I didn't actually mean for this to be quite so pink as it's not Jen's favourite colour, but there you go...hope she likes it anyway!

Thanks for popping by for a peak! :)
