Bright pink & girly

My mum's hubby Andrew asked me to make a card for his daughter - her favourite colours are pink & purple but I might have overdone it slightly, it's a bit bright!... I realised when I was making it that Sam is officially my stepsister now that they're married, didn't dawn on me before lol!




It's a large 8" square card, and the image is the fab 'strike a pose' from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  I've had the papers for ages and I've no idea what brand they are, and the flowers are some fabric ones that I've also had in my stash for a long time... they might have been free with a mag, I'm not sure.  I stitched the button and flowers together with some Bazzill thread, and added some leaves cut with a woodware punch.  The spotty ribbon is from Little Claire, and the sentiment was made up using some Elzybells stamps.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
