Sisterhood of Scrap Sketch Saturday - Happy Birthday

ETA: I found this in my scheduled list set up for August for some reason so I've set it up to publish this week, but there is now a newer sketch available too.

Here is my card for Sisterhood of Scrap's Sketch Saturday this week. The sketch was very similar to the layout sketch from last week, but instead of taking the grid pattern literally this time I chose to just use a textured piece made using my brand new bigshot & cuttlebug folder. (I have some more dies coming so expect to see alot of diecutting lol).
I figured seeing as I had already gone non-SU! (I do try to keep my blog SU! only, but every now and then i find myself straying lol) with the thickers and the cuttlebug folder then I may as well go all the way and use this Cakeabella image that was RAK'd to me by the lovely Marcia.
I coloured Bella using my blender pen & ink pads for the in colours, then my SW Markers for the rest of her. I wanted Bella to be a blonde, but I thought she needed to be a more natural blonde with highlights instead of just the one colour, so I started out with Barely banana, then using the fine end of my markers, I added some So Saffron and Summer Sun. I also added just a hint of Rose Red as any good home chef never cooks without her 'lippy' on right? hehe
