Laura's 22nd

My daughter, Laura, will be 22 this Wednesday. She's a girly girl and loves pink, hearts, kitties... you get the idea, so this image and these papers were perfect for her birthday card from us this year...

The image is a digi by Saturated Canary and is called Jules, coloured with promarkers. I'm not at all happy with her hair, it's the one area I need to practice on, and maybe get some more colours to achieve better results. That said, I am happy with how this card turned out. It's very Laura.
The 4 patterned papers used are digi's too, called Cuckoo 4 U, this colourway is 'strawberry love'. I've also printed out some more papers from this collection but in the 'true blue' colourway, but that's for another card for another day ;)
Punches used: Xcut 'sparkle' (border), and 2 woodware heart punches.
