Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!! I'm so glad the weekend is finally here.. Long 3-day weekend for me and boy do I need one. I have been wanting to share this card however I wanted to try to find the artist first. The image by Sesshy Kun, I found on Deviant Art and I wanted to use it to make a birthday card for my bestie Renate. When I saw this line art sketch I first thought how awesome and how much it reminded me of Ren. I didn't use any dp, but decided to go with a Stampin' Up stamp and some embossing folders. I also chose to use my go to spellbinders (oval and scalloped oval). For the paper colors I chose to go with dark brown, turquoise, kraft and a peach colored ribbon. I blended blues and greens for her top, love the color and how it looks a little textured.

I colored in her bangs and also her eyes. I wish I could color like the Manga artists, gotta practice!!! Gotta admit that I really like this one.
Well it's late and time for me to hit the hay... Have a wonderful Saturday!!!
