Magnolia circle friendship card

Hi again! I'm back with this weeks Feeling Sketchy card, we're well on our way to reaching 200 likers (and a giveaway) on our Facebook Page so pop on over and keep up to date with what the Sketchettes are doing!
Here is this weeks sketch, which once again I stressed over, but as soon as I sat down to create, I loved!
Circle cards aren't something I usually make, because I don't have any envelopes to fit them :P Silly excuse really! Here is my card - 
I cut out a scallop circle out of white card and a regular circle from patterned paper (retired) from My Minds Eye, I think it was Quite Contrary range, although, I could be wrong.... I then set to colouring this Magnolia image with my Stampin' Write Markers and blender pen. She was actually really easy to colour! I tried a different colour combination for her hair too... Usually a blonde is So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and More Mustard, but, I wanted a softer, lighter blonde, so switched out the Mustard with Crumbcake. I love how her hair came out, as it either makes or breaks an image I've found! So, once she was all coloured up, I fussy cut her out, and focused on the sentiment circle, which is a Spellbinders Labels 10 cut out of white, sponged with Crumbcake. I went over Magnolias wings and the label with some tombow craft glue, and then while it was still wet, sprinkled a bunch of glitter over the top adding just a touch of sparkle to the card. 
We'd love to see you over at the Feeling Sketchy blog, so why not drop round and play?
