Cool Ebony

It's Friday!!! Here is my own personal challenge card...

I've always practiced coloring Ebony's (The Greeting Farm) hair two tone using black and hot pink. A few times I used black and blue but I like this one. Where's the challenge you say? Well... for me it was having her highlight go through both the black and pink. I still need practice but I'm determined to get it. If you have any tips please share, I searched all Wednesday night. I bought this ribbon a long time ago and knew I needed to incorporate it with her and the flowers are from Prima Marketing. The paper is from Best Creations Inc. and the gemstones from Hero Arts. The charm?... I believe it fell off my daughter's bracelet. LOL!

Thanks for taking a look and for always providing warm wonderful comments. Also, I'll be linking this card to my friend Leanne's blog.  She is doing something super fun. Get more info here.  Go check out the fun things that others are linking up with.  Have a great weekend!!!

What a cool, cool card! That pink and black color combo is fabulous! I have a hard time doing highlights too but I agree with Leanne that you should keep practicing until YOU like it. ;O)
