Dressy Ebony Birthday

Wow, what an exciting day it has been.  My oldest daughter has been nominated by our Skating Club for CanSkater of the Year!  What an honor!  And, she's been moved up to the next level, so she'll be skating with some older kids and learning some new tricks!  So exciting, for her and her proud Mom!

But, after a stressful day, I needed to get into my scrap room and make something.  This sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches got the juices flowing.  I used some older My Mind's Eye paper and pulled this Ebony image from my stash of "coloured" things. 

See, I find that hair is the hardest thing to colour.  So, when I have a few extra minutes, I pull out the markers and colour hair...then when I need an image for a card all I have to do is colour the outfit to match the paper.  Now if only it were that easy when I was getting ready for work in the mornings!  LOL! 

My card also qualifies for the Colour Challenge over at Twilight Tuesday and for the Pink Elephants Challenge 49

Paper:  My Mind's Eye, Misc. Scraps
