Red Hat birthday

I remembered another birthday for next week (what does it mean, all these older women being born in the same couple of weeks?), and I also remembered that she had seen every RH card that I had made already, so I needed to make her a new one.  She is a woman of color, and I can't bring myself to put white women on cards that are being mailed to black women.  It just isn't right.  Fortunately, I had this image from Digital Two for Tuesday, good for any woman of any color.
Unfortunately, it lags in a lot of other areas.  This is one of those cards that I liked when I was putting it together, but not so much once I scanned it.  

Challenges:
KB Cute - girly
Card Cupids - bright and bold
Dream Valley - old (cardstock) and new (painted paper)
Scrappy Frogs - birthday
Sparkles - metal (brads)

Stop calling them "older women," girl, it will be You one day too ... LOL. I love the way you colored the purple bow on the hat. I enlarged it on my screen and just stared at it trying to see how you got the highlights so perfect. Guess it is the artist in you. I think you are very hard on yourself, this card is striking, colors are great, coloring is super, layout is fine. So what' not to like?Ok the gold stripe under the happy birthday sags a little. But don't we ALL when we get this old ...

Hee hee, Beach Cat's comment made me laugh!

I think it's great how you thought about the colour of the recipient's skin while making your card. That's very thoughtful and sensitive of you. Lovely card!
