Green & pink Birthday card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi everyone,

Today I've created a card using a Milk Coffee image, I have had her coloured up for ages but silly me didn't have the papers chosen first so it made it difficult to match up but here we are with some papers that match perfectly now!

I have used pearls from Flourish with a Bling.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail and wholesale online store. We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
