Sherri Baldy Birthday Girl

I've been practising my colouring with Promarkers over the past few weeks. I think I'm getting better.
The image I've used is from this months sponsor for Challenges 4 Everybody, Sherri Baldy. I pretty happy with how the top and bow have come out, but think I need a little more practise on hair.


Using a classic combination of colours for me, pink and blue, I've mounted the coloured image on co-ordinating background papers, finished with a simple sentiment, a feather and a wonderful die cut of a very intricate butterfly from Tattered Lace. It's my first Tattered Lace die, think I will be buying more, I just love it!

Now that the challenge is on for a whole month, you have plenty of tine to join in and try to win yourself some fab goodies.
