Gramma's Birthday Card

I am giving this birthday card to my Gramma today. Pink is her favorite color and this challenge from Stampavie was perfect for creating this card. We have to have 5 flowers, 2 different ribbons, at least one die cut (I have 5!), and use either pink or blue colors on the card.

I stamped this gorgeous Bernadette admiring the Spring Flowers image with black Stazon ink onto watercolor paper. I pulled out all kinds of ink pads and had a blast coloring this sweet scene. The hair is colored with Close to Cocoa ink, which has a reddish undertone to it. I wanted the hair to be sort of strawberry-blonde-ish, so I didn't add any darker browns to it.
