My first Saturated Canary card

I am totally in love with Saturated Canary digis, but I've been initimidate by colouring them so I only bought my first 2 just the other day! I'm not the worlds best colourer and shader so I'm not completeley happy with her hair on this one but I think it's a reasonable first attempt!

I've coloured with Promarkers and used Antique linen distress ink around the edges of the image. The paper is by My Minds Eye, the ribbon is from stash and I've used a cuttleug Divine swirls embossing folder which I've used textured card in and sanded the raised swirls. The corners are cut from a Sizzix die, and the sentiment is a LOTV stamp.

 I have followed the Sketch at Willow Sketchie Challenge:
