Happy birthday Lauren!

Hello my dear friend... today is a special day. its my nieces 18th birthday, and this card was made with her in mind...
Happy Birthday Lauren!
 my first attempt at red hair.. and it took me forever... couldn't get it just right.... 
but here she is ...

  this cutie is of course a Saturated Canary image, called "Ava", she is coloured with my Spectrums. the papers are Nitwits "Perfect Pair". the sketch is a "Deconstructed sketch" , I always look here for a layout inspiration! ... 

I had the devils job getting the face just right after the red strands of hair feathered..Grrrr! still... I think it looks OK ?
I LOVE the papers too....
