At last!!

At last, I have managed to finish a card this week!! This is my entry for the first challenge over at Pink Gems new Blogspot . The original sketch was for ovals but in the absence of oval nesties (still on the shopping list!!) I decided to use circles on a rectangular card instead. The original sketch is:

I used Birthday Milly stamp from Pink Gem, coloured with promarkers and paper pieced dress (another first attempt!!), with doodlebug papers, flowers, gems and ribbons from stash. The sentiment sticker is from the new Honey & Hugs collection by Papermania. It is unusual for me to make such a girly pink card but I liked the change!!
I think this will also be suitable for the challenge over at magical crafts fortnightly challenge which has the theme 'Something for the Kids' so I am going to enter that one too...yes I know this blog hopping is addictive!!!
