Sketch and Stash Challenge No 16

I think this card has to be the most girlyish card I have ever made to date.Could I have possibly used anymore pink, probably not but I did consider putting pink buttons on the top left corner.My buddy Mel gave me the backing paper which I instantly fell in love with.The flowers ,brads and ribbon are from my new papermania pink embellishment kit, which only cost me £1.99 from craft superstore, great bargain. I used my new gorjuss girl stamp from funky kits and coloured her using whispers markers.The decorative edge was done using my friskers template, which turned out really well, I think so anyway.I can't get enough of the gorjuss girl stamps.

Oh my god, I have just seen my card, which I made for sketch and stash challenge N0 15, on their blog.You probably know this already as I think I texted or emailed everyone I know but just in case you didn't I just had to mention it again.It's probably a one off so for now I am just going to enjoy the moment.If I win even better but just seeing my card has been one of the best things to happen to little old me.
