Happy Birthday: Sketch Saturday, Passion for Promarkers (and my niece)

I bought a new Martha Stewart punch whilst on holiday in America (well actually, I bought more than one) but for the moment I am hooked on ladybirds (or ladybugs - given that it is an American punch).  
This week Passion for Promarkers turned 1, Sketch Saturday turned 2 and the eldest of my two nieces turns 30 next week (the other one is only 5).   I have made a card using "Bye Bye" from the amazingly talented Mo Manning for my niece based on the perfect "sketch" at Sketch Saturday which incidentally has a fun blog hop to celebrate their birthday with some lovely goodies on offer.
Papers are a combination of My Minds Eye and Stampin Up.  I cut out the three with my Cricut and mounted my image on an oval zero.   The lettering is wordprocessed.  The image is coloured with Promarkers with just a little Stickles on the fur of her jacket.  I loved colouring this cutie although I see that some of my highlighting on her jeans isn't showing up very well in the photo. Passion for Promarkers has an "anything goes" theme and some fabulous treats this week so why not check out both challenges!
