Anything Goes Challenge- To the letter

Hello all! Hope you're all well. I'm a little late posting this so won't linger and will get on with the challenge! Today's challenge over at Anything Goes is "to the letter" so think about monogrammed cards, chipboard letters etc.. Let's see what you can come up with! Have a look at the DT work, it's so varied and gorgeous and is a great example of how different everyone can interpret a theme!

So here is my card:

I have used Strummabella by Stamping Bella. I coloured her with a mixture of watercolour and lyra pencils as usual and a warm copic outline. I lurve her hair!! I decided that she was probably singing "happy birthday to you!..." so that was the theme of my card so I picked out some old chipboard letters I had. I didn't have any numbers and thought it would push the card out of balance anyway so I diecut a "2" using a Sizzix die. Papers are by Basic Grey- don't forget you can buy your Basic Grey Papers from Lynn at The Craft Den!

Here is a close up of my colouring. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out if I do say so myself!!!

And another close-up! The ribbon is actually recycled off a choccie box! Gorgeous!

Well you should be pleased, your coloring is out of this world! Man, I love the combo of pencils with a hint of copics - it's a much softer look. And your chipboard letter sentiment is so creative.
