Growing Old Gracefully - with the Help of a Hairstylist

It's Thursday... that means it's time for a new


This week's challenge is a Birthday theme.
Here's my card:

I used the Stamp 'n Doodle Fabulous image for my card (well... part of it, anyway). The image really is an entire figure, but I wanted to focus on the idea of changing hair color so wanted to use a variety of headshots. So I printed multiples of the image and punched out the heads with my circle punch.
While my card doesn't specifically say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, it does make me think of the passing of years.
Here's the inside of my card:




Images: Stamp 'n Doodle Fabulous
Sentiments: computer generated
Ink: Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Baja Breeze, Crushed Curry, and Tangerine Tango
Designer Paper: We Are Memory Keepers Grandma's Kitchen Collection
Embellishment: Martha Stewart Persimmon Seam Binding

Super card, and it does make me think of birthdays. Great idea to use only part of the image.
