50th in London

Hi there 🙂 I recently got an order for a card for a 50th birthday. The celebrant will be going to London to celebrate this milestone. I was also told that she liked her drinks….which led me to think on this image from KennyK! I’m so glad that I got the images that I did, before the store closed down! I looked around online, and found a silhouette of the London skyline, and merged the image with it. After coloring the image with my Copics, I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils to do the sky background.

I used the colors of the UK flag as the inspiration when coloring, and when finishing off this card. I die cut the sentiment, then matted the image with the same papers. I absolutely adore how this turned out, and so did the recipient!! I even managed to guess the hair color right, lol.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
