Sketch Saturday #233

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
This week, sponsored by the wonderful

I so enjoyed making my Saturated Canary card last Saturday that I decided to make another one for our sketch this week, this time using Jamie Workout.  Isn't she gorgeous?!  I coloured her with Copics and I'm very pleased with her hair. Hair colouring is always a bit hit and miss for me.  Sometimes I do it to my satisfaction and sometimes my characters have bad hair days just like me!
I used some of my most favourite Stampin Up papers and the "birthday wishes" sentiment is SU too.  LOTV  supplied the "To a Treasured Friend".  I love the shape of this stamp but I wish they would make dies to go with it.
I added an organza ribbon, some lace and a spotty ribbon with a new sparkly slider  And here is our wonderful sketch.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz #44 "Feeling Blue"
Kaboodle Doodle #144 "Anything Goes"
Loves Rubber Stamps #25 "Anything Goes"
Raise the Bar #119 "Birthday Theme"

My fellow Saturdays have made gorgeous creations this week.  Do share some love with them and then come and play along!

Now this little gal looks so good in blue. I hear you about the hair. Sometimes I end up with monotone hair, no shadows and the hair ends up in the trashcan. Good dimension here though!
