A "fan" of my friend

I'm a fan of my friend.  She is a mom to two little girls and work full time.  She recently got a position and it is a significant career advancement.  I'm so proud of her.

Instead of sending her a Congrats card, I've made this one:

I'm sorry the picture doesn't have the best quality and guess what?  I can't figure out why! Argh!

I got the inspiration from the Muse here

Apparently I was drawn by the sketch of the Muse.  Similar to the Muse, I used the simple pattern as part of the background, then put the focal point in a circle to the right of the card, then a sentiment to its left.  While the Muse used watercolor to color her image, I used color pencils.  I like her colorful image on the black and white background, but I chose to have the colors spread across the focal image and the background.

What a fun challenge!  I learned how to dissect an awesome card and used some of the elements on mine! 

Thanks for stopping by!
