Zoe's 17th Birthday card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My daughter's friend Zoe is turning 17 tomorrow and so Chloe gave me a list of what she wanted on the card (ie. red hair, green/hazel eyes, lots of make up and fake tanned skin to look like Zoe). The other request was to make the card pink and black, and I thought "ooh, not sure how this will go with red hair" but I love how it turned out and wouldn't be scared to use these colour combinations again now. 

I die cut some sparkly black stars, I used Glossy Accents on her lips, bangles, and earrings. I also added some Wink of Stella to her cap but it's not easy to see on the photo. You can find the sassy little image at Saturated Canary. I just bought some new Saturated Canary images on the weekend so I'll be posting a few new cards soon :)
