Pretty with Pink

Still making birthday cards!

This one is special because I made it for my Mothers'  88th Birthday!
My mom is a talented portrait artist and has always loved portraits.
 I too find them so intriguing!

Here is the birthday girl

Happy 88th  Birthday  Mom!

Here is the card:

The first attempt, I really felt it needed more definition with focal point but I did not want to take away from  the delicateness of the image.
I tried an out line first, you couldn't even see it. 

So I went back to the old faithful black liner:
Much better I think.

Here is the finished card:

Thanks for stopping by, I wish you were here I share some birthday cake!!
