Let's celebrate 21st birthday girl card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi crafty friends,

It's the start of a new Polkadoodles challenge and they're always "anything goes". For the DT they give us a theme each time and this week it is to add a number. So I decided to use this gorgeous image as I thought she would be perfect for a 21st birthday card. It's a bit daring of me to give her a black dress using my Copics as I'm definitely not a colourist but sometimes it's fun to challenge yourself isn't it? Its all about the folds and creases and keeping them light. Dresses with lots of folds or creases like this are the easiest to colour black I think. I've added a close up photo below but if you click on them it will enlarge (so don't look too closely, my eyes aren't what they used to be hehe).

I hope you'll join in with the challenge, you don't have to use one of their products but it'd be lovely if you do. 

I have used an image from The Darling Buds, number from Winnie White Christmas and sentiment from Winnie Celebrations 1 sentiments for my card.
