The Paper Shelter Challenge #286 Birthday Girl

Good Morning and welcome to a new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is a nice and easy one - Birthday Girl - so we would love to see your birthday projects!

I used the revamped, but still gorgeous, Pastel Gothika for my card and went with a typical black and purple gothic combo. I went through a goth phase as  teenager and black was the colour of choice for everything! In fact, I still wear a lot of black, but my hair is now a bleached platinum blonde! Black hair makes me look really old now I'm middle aged! LOL

Anyway here she is...I attempted to colour a misty grey sky, but it didn't come out as dark as I initially wanted and then I got too scared to make it any darker in case it made it worse! Think I need to have a try on another image.
