Girl Power!

Good Morning! First, I have to tell you that I am the hostess this week over @ Our Creative Corner blog! Yahoo! It's super exciting! So, since I'm the hostess, I get to design the challenge. Doesn't that sound like sooo much fun? Well, I'm pretty happy! So, before we get to my card, let me first say that I work with some of the most fabulously talented ladies the paper crafting world has seen! They took the challenge and created some of the most beautiful things! Everything from an A2 card, to a wreath. How wonderful is that? So, pop on over and take a look. Then, grab your most girly, feminine paper crafting supplies and play along! The requirements: a hand-made paper flower, ribbon, and some bling! Super sweet, and pretty! I can't wait to see what you create!
Ok, now on to my card. My oldest granddaughter was my inspiration. Yes, she is a girly girl. She loves anything pink, princess, and glamorous! So, I used my girly supplies to create this card. The stamp is a wonderfully playful likeness of her. And the pink says it all!
Ok, this is another million product paper craft. I used paper from three different companies: Stampin' Up!, Basic Grey, and Wild Asparagus. The ribbon came from two different companies: Stampin' Up! and Paper Trey Ink. The bling came from one company: Stampin' Up! (glitter and rhinestones). I used the Birds & Blooms die to create the flowers. The pearl swirl was already formed. I just cut-off the larger half pearl, and substituted a medium Stampin' Up! rhinestone in its place. I used Stampin' Up! markers to color my stamped image: Pretty in Pink and Rose Red for her dress and shoes, and So Saffron for her hair. The buttons came from my Paper Trey Ink stash.
Thank you for visiting. Let me know what inspires you.
