Pastel Birthday Card (Pink Gem Designs image)

Hi everyone,

Here's my last card of the night and off I scoot to bed! 

I have used a lovely image from Pink Gem Designs and coloured around her in a green copic marker. Then I die cut her out in an oval and inked the rest of the image with teal ink but left the die on it so I would get the clean white border. I used pearl flourishes and pearls from Flourish with a Bling.

The Belle of the Ball Birthday Girl card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm back with my last card of the day, I hope you've enjoyed seeing them all if you've gotten the chance (or wanted to hehe).

I tried to colour this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary as best as I could. I'm no expert so it's very tricky sometimes when there's a lot of folds in her dress like that, I'm still learning with every image I colour. I added a light grey around the image so she pops out a bit. The beautiful pearl flourish and teal flower is from Flourish with a Bling
