Sparkle Card 2014 digi

I've only ever done a sketch for a card once before, but when I came across the Feeling Sketchy Sketch #80 comp I thought I'd give it a try. I was a bit nervous, and it took about five re-takes to get to this one, which I really like. I'm still in remember Shirley mode, and one of things I recall from an interview with another child star, was that Shirley's mother always said to Shirley "Sparkle Shirley" and Shirley would light up in front of the camera. This photo has that 'sparkle'. So I used that as the basis for my card.

I used the colours that were in the photo across the card to help tie it all in a bit - quite difficult colours to get the balance right - but I was happy with this.
