Birthday card... For kid? For adult?

Hi All,

Hope you had a very good weekend! Ready for Monday? I'm not! Weekend is never long enough but I did manage to find some time to make cards this weekend.

When I made this card, originally I had my daughter's friend Ayisha in mind. Yeap! She has been invited to another birthday party. (I am sure kids' social life these days are a lot better than the parents'!! ^_^) However, after I nearly finished the card, I changed my mind as it is just not cute enough for an eight-year-old birthday girl. It looks more sophisticated and more adult like so I decided to give it to my sister-in-law for her 40th birthday. Here is the card:
Am I right that this card looks more grown up than kiddie like? Am I, am I?
I followed sketch#C010 from Crafts 4 Eternity #148 for this card. Also I used the colour combo from Just Add Ink 189 Colour Challenge
Here is a close shot of the image:
I don't think I have mastered the colouring of the hair. Still couldn't get the highlight and light source correct. Don't give up, keep on trying, Julie!! Well, I hope you like this card and wish you all have a good start to the week. Oh! I am also entering this card to Simon Says - Anything Goes! See you soon!

  5. Hi Julie, I did the same sketch for an 8 year old and then thought, did it look too grown up. She loved it and especially the fact that it was made just for her, so I wouldn't worry! You made a fab card and I am sure it was appreciated. It is always the effort that goes into it that people appreciate so much. Thanks for joining us for our sketch challenge at c4e! keeley
