"Life of the Party" Birthday Card

I am loving my new Copic markers.  I colored up "Birthday Anya" by The Greeting Farm using my Copic markers.  I only have a few colors, so I had to be creative.  I colored her dress using Tim Holtz's Distress Stain in Broken China and used bronze stickles for her shoes and bow.  I colored the cake on top of her head with my colored pencils and then embossed it with sparkly embossing powder.  I love the new Life of the Party collection by Basic Grey.  It puts a totally different spin on the traditional birthday card.  The sentiment on the front is from the PI stamp set, "Hello Cupcake" by My Favorite Things.  Add a little Prima bling and a cute flower from Kaiser Craft and you have yourself an adorable birthday card.

First Copic Tutorial

Here is my first colored picture from my very first Copic tutorial.  I am so excited with the results.  Here is a link to my instructor's example.  
What do you think of my results?  We just learned about skin on this tutorial, but I decided to color the entire picture.  I am submitting mine, hopefully I will win!!
