First Ever Tilda Card

Hi everyone,i am not sure about this card ,for one my colouring is terrible with promarkers the face is really bad i think i must be doing this all wrong when i use the blender it makes the face look all patchy,am i using too much of it ?I loved this image with the cake  & these papers which are called sherbet lime papers from card buddy's at cardmaking downloads , i then just used items i had from my own stash ,i am very limited as i dont have a lot of flowers ,ribbon etc..I thought these colours would look good but now i am not so sure ,what do you think good or bad ?and please be honest otherwise i am never going to learn ,any tips greately appreciated  with the colouring.

Tulip Birthday Card

Hi  Again
My god its freezing !we dont have snow yet but who knows that could easily change but its so frosty & the roads are so sparkly.So once again i am making a Birthday Card for my daughter using the latest docraft digital designer dvd rom Tulip & Friends.
I printed the striped paper from this dvd rom and added it to my card,then i used another one of the papers and added the happy birthday frame  around it which i got from a digi kit from My Memories.com i then printed this out.
I printed out a decoupage sheet which has tulip & that gorgeous cake  & dog,cut all of these out & layered them with foam pads onto the blue framed card ,then i added a bow  which is also on the dvd rom .
I then added stickles to the cake & blue gems onto the bows,then i used a promarker to go round the edge of the card & a sakura pen to add some shimmer which i just love at the moment.
The inside of the card i used the same papers again & added my own text & i added the presents & balloon  embellishments  plus another bow also from the dvd rom,finished again with the promarker & sakura pen .
