My Daughter Chloe's 15th Birthday card (Aurora Wings image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My last card of the night to post, phew! I created this centre step card for my daughter's 15th Birthday which is about to happen tomorrow. I used a beautiful image from Aurora Wings and coloured it up with my Copics. I used a white paint pen to give her eyes a little "glimmer". I added some Chloe pearl flourishes that were actually named after my daughter as I designed them for my company, Flourish with a Bling (click on the name and it will take you to our store - little secret for my followers, we have a 50% off sale happening throughout April). I love how the card turned out, I hope she does too.
