Pastel Birthday Card (Pink Gem Designs image)

Hi everyone,

Here's my last card of the night and off I scoot to bed! 

I have used a lovely image from Pink Gem Designs and coloured around her in a green copic marker. Then I die cut her out in an oval and inked the rest of the image with teal ink but left the die on it so I would get the clean white border. I used pearl flourishes and pearls from Flourish with a Bling.
