Looking Gorgeous

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to do some coloring and 
create a birthday card for a friend.
I am one to always send a uplifting or over the top comical
birthday message.  Today it is uplifting.

I started with a 6.5 x 5 card base from Recollections, given to me as a gift in a package,
which works great for little quick and easy projects to satisfy the crafty, I GOT AN IDEA, moment.

The image I am using is All Dressed Up, Looking Gorgeous.
You can find it HERE along with many more wonderful digi images.

I have colored her with copics.
Skin: E50, 51 ,53 ,33
Hair: E57, E53, 51 and one SN  GB8
Flowers: RV00, R81, 85
The leaves and various other small parts I decided to pull out the gel pens.

I then embossed the entire panel with a Darice embossing folder and cut a cereal box to use 
as a diffuser for the girl.  Any areas that did get embossed on my image I
used a bone folder to flatten again.

I used Pebbles Classic chalk to go around my image and to dust the raised
embossed images.

I hope you have enjoyed todays little birthday project.
