Polished to Perfection

Some cards just seem to make themselves and this is certainly true of this card. I wanted to use the Sketch Saturday sketch as it is clean and simple just like me, I normally struggle with sketches but this one is so easy to use and I can see it being a regular from now on.

I coloured the image with my copics and am quite pleased with how it worked, wish I could have gotten more definition with the hair.  The colours were determined by the snippets I had on my desk and I must admit I do like this colour combo, I was originally going to use "fine linen" from papertrey but I couldn't bear to cut into a new sheet so I used the left over kraft instead.
