A birthday card for Monkie

My creative friend Monique (aka Monkie, you can find her blog here) had her birthday last week and as is custom with us I had to make her a little something. I decided on a birthday card that was fully made up of my colourful doodles.

The card has four pages that are filled to the brim and each has some words from a Dutch birthday song. I drew the card with a fineliner gelpen and coloured it in with tombow dual brush markers.

Here are the four pages up close:

As you can see I chose a different colour scheme for each page, mostly because that gave me a bit of  variety while I was making it, because even though it's a small card, these doodles take a lot of time to do! ;-)

I hope my friend liked receiving this card as much as I enjoyed making it!
