Friday Sketchers & Creative Card Crew

Here's my card for Friday Sketchers following their fab sketch, and I'm also entering it for Creative Card Crew where the challenge is 'celebrations' - although I've not actually put a sentiment on the front, it's for a little girl's 5th birthday. I'm going to put a sentiment inside this one.

It's very bright isn't it? But I think I like it, and it's very girly! This is one of my favourite gorjuss girls, and I've coloured her with promarkers, with a touch of white highlighter and some stickles here and there. The papers were a bargain from a local craft shop - £1 for 6 12x12 sheets! I'm not sure what brand they are though. The spotty ribbon was a craft show purchase. I've used a scalloped card blank from Craftwork Cards and coredinations cardstock. The hearts are cut with a sizzix die, and embossed with the divine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder, then I've sanded them back and added a couple of sparkly gems. The flowers are green tara, with some stickles painted onto the bright pink flower - you can never have too much sparkle! Finished off with a big gem brad centre.
