Birthday Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hi to all you creative people!  I have been playing with my new Circut Artiste Collection.  I love the doilies on this cartridge; so I decided to play with them on this card.  I created this Birthday card for my granddaughter Lana.  This little girl reminds me so much of her.  She will be 10 years old; so I hope this isn't too young for her.  This is a Whoopsi Daisy girl I purchased several months ago; but didn't know how to use Digi stamps at that time.  This is only my second Digi stamp that I have colored.  I am still learning to use Copic markers. 



Inside my card
