Blue & Pink Birthday card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi crafty friends,

My second and last card to post tonight as it's midnight here and bedtime really. 

This lovely image can be found at Saturated Canary and to change up my colouring a bit I added a darker grey outline once I'd finished the image. I also distressed all the papers and added some Flourish with a Bling silver rhinestones & flourishes to finish it off.

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout January, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!
