Cheer Girl Congrats Card

Thank goodness for Friday! This week has been busy for me and I had a couple of unexpected things pop up over the week, but it's all good. Last weekend my youngest niece was in a cheer hip hop dance competition and they won first place. She was very excited and had a lot of fun. Since I live a couple of hours away and can't give her a hug, I decided to make her a card. This Cheer Girl Congrats Card was made using the Cheer Girl digital image by Meljen's Designs. Her team colors are purple and that's where the color scheme comes from. I colored the image with my Copic markers and while doing so I really wished I had a light purple color for highlighting purposes, but I didn't, so I made do with what I have. The light purple background paper is a recycled envelope from a birthday card I received last year. For a little sparkle I sprayed the entire card with ice glimmer mist, it doesn't show up in the picture but is a nice finishing touch. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
