Chloe's 16th Birthday card (Kenny K images)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Well, it was my darling daughter Chloe's 16th Birthday last week and it's a challenge each year trying to outdo myself with her card! But as soon as I saw these Kenny K background and girl images I knew these were perfect for her. I used the png versions so I could add the girl into the scene. I coloured the girl as if it was Chloe with blonde highlights and hazel eyes. She loves the colour teal hence the main colour. I then found all my fashion embellies that would be perfect to border the scene. The "Love" and "16" look glittery and lovely in real life but not so much in the photo lol.
