Color Me Creative Challenge # 91- Birthday

i Copic is the sponsor of the Birthday challenge at Color Me Creative.  One of Christy Croll's Tiddly Inks images, called Celebrate Joyfully is the subject of my card.  Don't you love those feet?!?!  Each time I work on coloring clothing, I realize I need more practice!  It takes a while to orient my eye to where the shading and highlights will fall.  There are usually 5 images that go in the garbage as I refine my coloring.  This girl was no exception - and her skirt was fairly simple! I did mess around with a new color combination for her hair - and like how it turned out.  Thanks go to Freshly Made Sketches for the card sketch.

Copics Used:  
Skin - E000, 21, 11, R11
Dress - R20, 22, 32, 24
