21 today

Hi girls
Just popping in quickly to show you the card I made for my DD who is 21 today:)  
It certainly doesn't seem that long since she was a babe in arms who became a little monster and then blossomed into a beautiful young lady:) 

I've seen a few of these easel cards around but this is my first attempt at it and over all I'm pleased with it.  She loves it which is the main thing. She's not at all girlie, hence the plain Bazill card stock, even putting the flowers on had me cringing lol.

The image is from Make it Crafty, isn't she gorgeous?  
It took me an age to colour her hair with me copics although I followed one 
of Zoe's fabulous tuts and got there in the end. Ive really seen an improvement in my work since 
I've been a member of her site.  Thanks Zoe:)
I wasn't sure how the other girls made the little cake but I used an old ribbon reel and a spellbinders die.
It worked fine and is sturdy too so hopefully it won't fall to bits lol.
