Nicole's Graduation card

Hi there! I've been kinda MIA. I haven't been feeling well and have been having tests. I'll be fine, tho.
My cousin Nicole is having her belated grad party/birthday party tomorrow night. I needed to make her a card so I picked up this cute Mo's Digital Pencil image and colored her in Nicole's school colors.

How in the H.E. double hockey sticks do you color THIS hair? I was at a loss but didn't feel like looking up a tutorial so I winged it!! I wish it came out a little better but I'm sure Nicole won't be scrutinizing the coloring. Over all it's a cute card, IRL.
The sentiment is from a Flourishes Grad Stamp set. Since I used "unlock your future" I HAD to add a little key, right? Can you see it? Don't know the paper manufacturer but it's from Mike's or Joanne's.

The rest is pretty self-explanatory. :) I still haven't figured out how to add my new watermark I bought from Karen Giron. I use Picasa right now for photo-editing but have downloaded GIMP but can't figure it out yet.
This card only fits a couple challenges that are out this week.
Have a great day, peeps!


  1. This is ever so fun, Kim! LOVE that image to pieces, and I think that you've colored her hair beautifully! Hope you get to feeling better :(.

  2. I'm with ya sister! That type of hair is tough to do right, but I think you did just fine. :-) I'm so sorry to hear you've been down and out. Hope all the tests come back good and you'll be back jumpin' stumps in no time. hee hee Southern humor is good medicine and FREE! LOL Big hugs!

  3. This is awesome! What a fabulous graduation card! Thank you so much for joining us at Make it Monday! Don’t forget to leave a comment for another entry and mention you saw them on MIM for a chance at our second prize!
    Good luck!
    Rene :D

  4. I totally LOL'd at your question about how to color the hair...heeee, too funny! Great job on the hair, love all the stars and embellishing. :)
