Happy Birthday

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Make it Girly
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I LOVE this image for making girly cards!!  I think it's the pearls, honestly; they get me every time!  This card was actually inspired by the big of card stock that the sentiment is stamped on.  I was looking for something a couple weeks ago and came across the panel that was already stamped.  I loved the pattern (damask is my favorite decor theme) and the color combo, so I pulled it out of my stash and left it on my desk so I would use it.  As sit was only a small piece, I had to create some more "papers" to go along with it.  The base panel started with a Hero Arts "French Script" stamp and dark gray ink. Then I embossed the panel and sponged orange ink over the raised parts.  I LOVE it!!  Definitely will be doing this whole combo again.  For the horizontal panel, I used the same French Script and dark ink and also stamped the damask pattern from the inspirational panel with orange ink.  I die cut the image so her pearls dangle over the frame and I used a pearl pen to add dimension to her necklace.  I finished everything off with gray pearls and a gorgeous handmade flower from Petal Lu Creations.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Beautiful card and coloring, love how you fussy-cut the beads and shoulders to drop over the silver frame and giving great dimension for your image. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

Love your metallic card accents, the image reminds me of a little girl playing dress up. I'd love to see you participate in the optional challenges as well to incorporate transportation into your card.
Thanks for playing with Double Trouble.
