Pretty in Pink

Hi again!  I'm back with a second and very quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy.  I haven't had much of a chance to make non-DT cards since my surgery, but this one was quick and easy to put together so I gave it a go.

Here is my girly-pink card:

My card base and mats are SU Pretty in Pink and the patterned paper is from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl 6x6 pad.  The darling image is Little Ballerina from Lili of the Valley.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Diamond Glitter to her tu-tu and the hearts on her headband.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I finished my card with a double-loop pink satin bow, a few Ivory Flower Shape Flatback Pearls, a Wild Orchid Crafts Pale Pink Cosmos Daisy and a couple of Wild Orchid Crafts Baby Pink and White Sweetheart Blossoms.  You can get all of these embellishments at The Ribbon Girl on-line shop.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I'll see you tomorrow for my Little Miss Muffet Super Saturday post.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley November Challenge (use pink and white)
The Ribbon Girl November Challenge (use stripes)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #231 (sketch)
