Girly Girly with Crafting by Designs

Pink and girly is what we're going for this week at Crafting by Designs. Our latest challenge is sponsored by All Dressed Up digital stamps and I have used their Abi Ballerina image for this very girly birthday card.

I have coloured the image using Promarkers and the papers and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards. I have used a set of X-Cut dies to cut fancy 'parenthesis' rectangles to mount her on and finished the card with pink organza, flowers and pins with some diamantes in the corners too.

I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
All Dressed Up Challenge #7 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Birthday
Deep Ocean Challenges - #69 Birthday
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Make it Feminine (I've added flowers and a ribbon/bow)
PaperTake Weekly - Bow Dies (X-Cut Parenthesis Rectangle dies and organza bow)
Party Time Tuesday - #156 Use Ribbon
Passion for Promarkers - #231 Ribbon, Lace or Twine
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes Jan 21-27

Thanks for looking! Hope to see you go Girly this week!
