Happy Birthday Card with Saturated Canary Image

Another week has gone by and it's been a very busy one. Today Josslyn is sick with some kind of a tummy bug and can't keep a thing down. She has slept most of the day and my wonderful hubby took Brielle to Burger King to play for a bit, which left me time to finish this card.

I was steered in the direction of Saturated Canary Challenge Blog by Pat Frank. Thank you so much honey for the push in that direction. They are having a DT call, and so I made this card for that, but I'm not going to enter after all. I really have so many irons in the fire right now that there's not the room for one more. I'll catch them on the next round. In the meantime, I've really enjoyed coloring this image. She is called Naveah. I believe I'll be going back grab some more of these adorable whimsical gals. I'm entering this card into the following challenge...

Dream Valley Challenges - Anything goes

So here's what I've been working on...

She is colored with Copic markers (listed below) and I used Distress Ink for the background. I made the charm with beads from my stash.

A closer look at how I colored her...

And the salutation panel...
