A girly karate card...

I was making some male karate cards for a friend a few weeks ago and I stamped a few extra images from this cute Elzybell stamp (now closed down). As I was colouring them I thought they could work just as well for a girl as a boy and there are loads of girls doing karate so here it is! I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday but simplified it slightly. Spoon Full of Sugar have 'Birthday wishes' as their challenge. I Love Promarkers have 'stitching- real or faux' - I started off with just the stitching around the image but then added it to the layers because I think it helps to unify them and adds some more black. Charisma have 'black, white and one other' and Totally Gorjuss have 'black plus one'.
