A Shower of Birthday Wishes

I've been practicing my shading with my Copics.  I colored this girl, using her as a birthday card for a good friend, and using her in a couple of Springtime challenges.

I used a Unity stamp set, Lizzie Girl (Showered in Love), Carta Bella Kraft cardstock for the base, and a small piece of My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary paper I have been hoarding.  I'm particularly pleased with how well her boots match the paper -- one of the things I'm working on with my coloring.

I used this card for's challenge this week -- something you do on spring break.  In my case, it always rains when I'm on vacation, so I always need an umbrella.

I'm also entering this card in:
crafty creations challenge, singing in the rain
Oozak's challenge #12:  anything goes with spring
MarkerPop's Spring Bling challenge #18
