Something a bit different

A work colleague asked me to make her niece an eighteenth birthday card. I said no problem. Then she said she is into theatre and acting. I thought there must be those masks out there somewhere as a digi stamp, but I couldn't find one. In the end I gave up and drew one, which I scanned back into the computer and got rid of the smudges in photoshop. Here is the result.
The background stamp is from crafty individuals, and although you can't see it in the photo there is quite a bit of silver mirri board in the matting and layering. The sentiment is computer generated. I'm hoping she will be happy with it.
better go - I'm in the middle of Steve's valentine card and it isn't great. Thanks for looking x

Wow Sally, I think this is fabulous! I honestly thought the masks were a stamp or at digi download. Brilliant idea and drawing and I'm sure the young lady in question loved it too.
