Chloe's Easel Birthday card

This is my third post for the day and I'm terribly sick with a cold so I'm amazed I'm finally uploading them to show you!

I made this card for my darling daughter's 13th Birthday so I thought I'd make it extra special, she loved it! I coloured the gorgeous Crafts & Me digi (artist is Hannah Lynn) with copics. I inked and glossed the chipboard (from Scrapmatts). I love using a pop of black. I have used pearls and the beautiful hot pink flower from Flourish with a Bling.
