Happy 21st Birthday Tahlia (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My girlfriend's gorgeous daughter is turning 21 in a couple of weeks and it's a masquerade party. I found out she's wearing white and gold (the 2 hardest colours to try and colour haha!) so when I saw this new image from Hannah Lynn (find it at Crafts and Me) I just had to buy it and try my best at colouring it to match my friend's daughter. Hopefully you see the image wearing white and gold rather than grey and yellow hehe. I then coloured the background with my black Copic marker. I also used a lot of dies on this card and gold heat embossed on the sentiment/tags. I have a close up below, click on it for extra enlargement.
