Eloise Greengrass meets Amy's sketch challenge #52

Oh my another sketch challenge...  yes well I went to give one of my nieces a birthday card to find that I only had a couple of cards that would have been suitable.  I was saddened as the card we gave to Charis, I thought it was not as girlie as it could glitter... no sparkes..  At least there were flowers.  Annaliese thought the card I sent was lovely... she chose it.. This predicament set me to work and make up some little girl cards.  I have 7 neices so I have plenty of little girls to make for.  

I was blog crusin for inspiration and saw Amy's sketch challenge and well i just had to give it a go. LOL... Amy's site is lovely and full of lots of tutorials and inspiration.  it can be found here.
This is the sketch challenge..

And her is my girlie card.. not quite as bright as Amy's sketch..

 I think at times there is a little glittery  girl in all of us..

Stamps : Eloise Greengrass (Stamping Bellas), Short and Sweet, Polka dot

Card stock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal

Ink: Stazon Black, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Rose Pink, Apricot Appeal, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing edge, White gel pen,Pink grosgrain ribbon, Oval hole punch (large and small)

Hope it made you smile.  Take care and have a great rest of the week end.  I am off to the garden..

This card is absolutely fantastic. I love everything about it. And it definitely passes the "girl" test.
