It's Your Birthday Old Brawd

This is another one for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. OK ladies I need some help here. I have been talking with Shannon about how to kick up my designs a bit as they seem dull and plain to me. She suggested that I stop trying so hard to combine so many challenges. So this is just one challenge. I colored this darling image from a set I just got from Totally Stampalicious called Old Brawd. I just love this sassy lady. I used copics to color her. I cut the image Out of the Box and matted it on Riding Hood Red cs. I stamped the sentiment in black on kraft cs. I used some Indian Summer dp for the 3 side panels. I layered some primas and added a purple daisy brad to hold them all together and folded a strip of ribbon to place under the primas. So what do you think?

ETA: Rebeccah contacted me the day I loaded this asking for permission to add to the on line gallery and after I thought about it for an entire 1 sec I rapidly replied "YES", it is now on thier gallery page. Whoo Hoo. I am so thrilled that this company liked what I made.
