Jades Birthday Card

On the 16th May my eldest child, Jade was 12 and she asked me to make her a card, i had so many ideas and was hours away from making it when she told me she really liked Saturated Canary and could i make one using one of them!  She had specific requirements too, it had to be pink and black, not too childish and not covered in flowers!

Well this is what i came up with
The image is so Jade, WHEN she is at home she is always in her room with a book near her and sitting on her bed.
I coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The card blank is 8 x 8

The papers are from Craftwork Cards as is the spotty ribbon
The pink ribbon is from That Craft Place

The pins are from Crafty Emma's Store
The Pink Pearls are from Dunelm.
Jade was really pleased with it, so i was happy!
Thank you for looking.
