Quick Bday Card - World Cardmaking Day

Here is a birthday card I made for my grandmother's 90th birthday party yesterday. It was my first time coloring up the sweet TGF Cheeky Cherry Pie. I used the sketch from The Greeting Farm's Double Take Tuesday. I really am not a fan of how her hair turned out. I used E31, E33, and Y28. It did not blend well but oh well.

Here is the sketch I followed. This was the first time I followed a sketch so it was an interesting experience. Thanks for the inspiration!

I would like to add this card to the following challenge:
