Birthday Queen

I wanted a birthday card for our daughter and this image just looks like her.

The background:  I always have a piece of thick paper (about 160gsm) under my crafting mat and bring it out to use when I am inking things with Distress Inks to catch the over run.  I love the random effect, and it usually comes out nicely, then when it is at the right stage I use it and start another one.

Image: Time for Tea
Coloured with Copics
Sentiment: typed on computer
