Happy 15th Birthday

I made it back to the craftroom for a tiny moment.
This is the card I created for our daughter's 15th birthday last week.
Can't believe our baby is 15....and to put it into perspective for me.  At the end of this year for me at the same age I was finishing school.  Luckily....she is looking at doing another two years.
DD had a request for colours....NO pink!, but please use purple, green, orange, yellow red.  So I went for the first three.
I bought this wonderful Kenny G Queen Cutie image.....I have been loving his images for a while now and this was the perfect excuse to buy one.  I have coloured her with my watercolour pencils.  The skin I have been using a ciao pen but that ran out end of last year.  So had to go back to mixing two of my watercolour pencils together, so she is a little pale.
I have used a white BE square card and layered it up with some wonderful purple bazzill card and the lovely orange and green stripe paper I have had for a little while.  Added '15' stickers and then framed the 'make a wish' rub-on with the lovely bling frame I was lucky enough to win.

I will entering this card in the following challenges.
