Girly Girl

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm about to head out for the day, but before I do, I wanted to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I like to do.  It is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #145 and Basic Grey Challenge #65 (Mother's Day or Girly). 

Here is the SSW sketch:

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of SU Almost Amethyst and layered all the sketch panels with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush 6x6 pad.  My sweet girly image is Birthday Balloons from A Day For Daisies.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I added sparkle and shine to the balloons with Spica pens then Glossy Accents.  An amethyst satin bow and a few flowers from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and see you soon!
