Flamenco Dancer Birthday card (Milk Coffee image)

OMGosh, it's so great to be back blogging, I really hope you all love the cards I've been creating lately, I'm about to bombard you with a few over the coming weekend hehe. 

I have been on a road trip from Melbourne to Sydney for a week and we had a lovely time but I really missed my crafting/blogging to my crafting friends. We are having the opposite weather to those of you suffering in the cold, we have had a heatwave and just about to get another next week, I hope you're all getting a little warmer weather now.

Anyway, onto my latest card, this one was made using a gorgeous image from Milk Coffee. I coloured her with copic markers.
