Some Odd Girl September Sketch

So a few weeks ago I sent a bunch of cards off to my daughter and her friends as they started their sophomore year of college.  This weekend I realized I have 3 nieces who are freshman in college .... I believe they need an Auntie M card in their mail boxes soon :)

I used this months SoG sketch for them

Here is the one that I used with Teacher's Pet Tia (from SoG) as the image:
I used a Midnight Muse (SU!) card base and Delightful Daffodil (SU!) and Boyfriend mini deck (Cosmo Cricket) for the layers.  The sentiment  s from Giga Guidelines (PTI)
I spent a lot of time coloring this.  I hope as I get better I also get faster.  I don't like spending 2 hours on one part of a card.  I'm sure speed will come with practice though (at least I can tell the Basic Coloring class is working :))
