Pink and girly...

Hiya! I was definitely in need of making a pretty pink and girly card so I've made my niece's birthday card a little earlier than I normally would :-) It's still a couple of weeks to her birthday but this image (sent to me by the fabulous Mandy) is just perfect for her. She goes to dance classes and is becoming a little star! I followed a fab sketch from Friday Sketchers and coloured her with my promarkers as usual. The papers are Henbury Lane (the spotty one has some sparkle that you can't quite see on the piccies) and I've cut out the letters and number using the Bang! Zoom! alphabet on my Bigshot. There's glitter glue everywhere! Went a bit mad :-) You can see some of it in piccie 2, especially on the flowers. I won the flowers and the heart gems from Debs (thankyou!) and I got the pearls from ebay. I used my heart lace border punch for a couple of layers in the background but it hasn't worked very well because I had to cover most of it up because of the size of the pink panel! Oh well, I saved all the hearts I punched out for another project :-)
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Moving Along with the Times - Anything goes (use Promarkers, sponsored by Letraset)
Just Magnolia - Think Pink
Friday Sketchers - Fab sketch
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
Totally Tilda - Pink and Pearls
The ABC Challenge - G is for Glitter
Have a fab day!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
