A Girly Graduation

Hi All!  I feel like I always say this but I've got a fun one for you today :)  I love doing girly cards so when I got asked to do a special girly graduation card I immediately got excited.  It just so happens that in a round about way I actually kinda know the girl it's for- a long time ago I worked in daycare and drove her to school each morning.  It kinda makes me feel old to think about that!  But it's fun to think about where her life might take her now.  I instantly thought about a Kenny K image because  they are so appropriate for girls that age and I figured Download Diva was the perfect mix of sassy and sweet.  I colored her up with my Copics to match some My Minds Eye design paper and, per the request of the person ordering the card, I gave her brown hair and brown eyes so she even kind of looks like the person receiving the card....that is the beauty of a custom card!  This is one of those cards that I kinda wish I could keep for myself because it's the kind of card I would love to get :)
Copic List
Face: E000, E00, E11, R20, R32
