Birthday Moonbeams

     I'm practicing (a lot!) on coloring long hair and today's card is just another example of my practice.  :-D  The image is from The East Wind and I fall in love with images over there each time I see a new one.

     Colored entirely with ProMarkers and fussy cut on two sides, then die cut with a rectangle die.  Papers from Colorbok and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow is one I have admired for months over on Sassy Raggedy's blog (she uses them regularly) and I finally asked her to teach me how to make them.  She immediately 'fessed up that she doesn't make them, she buys them at Hobby Lobby and I made a mad dash over to my own Hobby Lobby and grabbed several.  Thanks, Joann, my Sassy friend!

  6. Beautiful card. Keep trying on colouring long hairs, you're doing good :). But I'm not sure it's monochrome one - you have yellow and I wrong?
