Happy Birthday, Kathryn!

We have a new friend that's joined our local group of stampers. Kathryn actually just celebrated her birthday recently and this is the card that I made for her. She's a yoga instructor and is very big into spirituality, so I thought this card for be fitting for her.  A little birdie told me that she's found of butterflies, too.   I just happened to have a 'few' butterflies, so I could add them to the card, as well.  :)

I found this digi image of a woman meditating and I re-sized it in PhotoShop and printed it off. I had a bit of trouble colouring this image with my Copics and Touch markers, they seemed to want to bleed a little bit, darn it! I'm still learning, so bear with me! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Julie, this turned out so pretty! Did you notice how Kathryn loved that you colored the hair the same as hers - isn't she just too sweet? I love how it turned out....
