The Belle of the Ball Birthday Girl card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm back with my last card of the day, I hope you've enjoyed seeing them all if you've gotten the chance (or wanted to hehe).

I tried to colour this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary as best as I could. I'm no expert so it's very tricky sometimes when there's a lot of folds in her dress like that, I'm still learning with every image I colour. I added a light grey around the image so she pops out a bit. The beautiful pearl flourish and teal flower is from Flourish with a Bling
