Such a beautiful card and her hair looks gorgeous! I know what you mean about colouring her hair in pink, I haven't quite plucked up the courage yet either lol. The pink and green looks beautiful together and your design is gorgeous.

cebelica said...

I keep saying that I will colour my hair in other colours (not just black or brown), but when it comes to that, I never do it. Hopefully one day I'll find the courage to do so.
Your card turned out beautifully - even if you didn't colour the hair pink. ;) You coloured the image beautifully and I like the colour combination you used. Also, I think those little flowers on top are a perfect finishing touch.
Hugs! xx
