A special birthday

Today I'm sharing with you a very special birthday card.

This is my very first commissioned image :D

It's for a headmistress of a school who is 50 today!

The image is based on my Kitty Mannequin Model.  My mum and dad asked me to change features on it as it was already similar to Gretl herself.  I added in a blackboard and my dad suggested the writing to go on it.  This truly is and handmade one of a kind card.

The image was coloured with Copics and I kept the design clean and simple just adding a piece of card stock to frame the image.

Happy Birthday Gretl!
