All Grown Up

October was a very special month for my youngest granddaughter.  It was her 18th birthday!  Wow!  Seems like only yesterday that I was rocking her in my arms.  Such a beautiful girl!  And she just got her first job.  YAY!  I'm so very proud of her.

For her special birthday card I chose to use another Saturated Canary image.  This little cutie is called Starla.  Doesn't she look like a star.  I love the little mustache thingie she's holding too.  Those are so popular right now.  I thought the black striped paper behind her complimented her little tights.  I wish I had stars on my face too.  LOL

These are the card details:

Copics used:  Skin (E000, E00, R11), Hair (E31, E41, E35), Eyes (E35), Clothing (C0, C1, C7, B0000, B000, B00, B02)
DP:  DCWV "All Dressed Up matstack", American Crafts Glitter Paper 6x6 pad
Distress Ink 'black soot'
Other elements from my stash

This design is perfect for a 18 year old! I think the black and turquoise background works so well with this beautifully colored image and the layout is great! I'm visiting from MIM.
