Happy birthday to me

It's my birthday today. OMG I won't tell you how old I am but think my joints are starting to creak LOL. Nah not that bad. Hoping for a day of a sleep in (this is a scheduled post), shopping, my favourite dinner and then my regular Zumba class. Can't wait.
Thought I would make a birthday card seeing I thought it was fitting for this day. I used the sketch from Stamp with Fun. This is also my Mad for Markers Thursday post - the challenge this fortnight is to colour your embellishments so I coloured the rhinestones. What do you think....?? I love this new DP (well to me anyway) from MME in their Lime Twist range.

Copics used:
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
Dress/Apron: R24, 22, 29, BG10, 11, 23, 72, W3
Presents: YG21, 23, 25, 63, 67, BG72, 75
R24, 29, 22, 21, BG10, 23
Rhinestones: RV99, YG25, BG13, R24, BG75
---------------------------------------------------------------
This card was made for the Sketch Saturday sketch and I had all intentions of using this for my Mad for Markers post but I am just so unhappy with it that I am not even going to enter the challenge. Just thought I would show you. Must be the colours. I can't work out why I don't like it but I don't LOL.
