SDC #5 - It's a Girl Thing

The latest Stampotique challenge is "it's a girl thing"and you have to do girlie girl things!  Now, I am a bit old for girlie girl stuff, but I had to have a go.  Although it isn't essential for this challenge, I have decided to use a Stampotique image.

You will not BELIEVE how long I spent looking for the right papers to use but in the end I've used some patterned papers I got from QVC years ago (!) - I am sure they cried when I cut them - and a Timmy H stamp (the flourish) that arrived today... ahem.... which I stamped in Spun Sugar distress ink on the edge of the card round the girl. I did some matting and layering with the papers, added some sheer ribbon and a couple of Prima flowers that I got from my sister in law Lynne's online store All Things Crafty, (although mine were a swap for a sheet of stamped grungepaper Wendy V butterflies); and which match the pinky theme quite nicely. I used a couple of pearls for the flower centres, cos a girl's gotta have bling!
Go check out the other entries, there are some crackers!

Worht all the tears and the time - quite a challenge from a company who's girls are not exactly girly! You did a great card and personally feel you're never to old to be girly.
