Way too Girly..

Hi blog friends, I am bringing you a card today that is soo not my style but it worked out great and I may have had a little bit of fun, going way overboard with the glitz and sparkle.. but shhh don't tell anyone lol.. So here she is:

I started with a 6 x 6 card blank and matted a piece of  patterned paper from Prima Sparkling Spring, its an old collection but its so pretty. I then die cut the image with a circle nestie then matted that on to a piece of Core'dinations Whitewash Pink card stock that was die cut with Spellbinders Lacy Circles then sanded back to reveal the pink core. Next I die cut 2 flourishes, 1 Die-namics Fancy Flourish and 1 Cheery Lynn - Mini Fanciful Flourish, both out of Core'dinations whitewash Pink card stock, they both got a light sanding then were adorned with Stickles and Crystals.

The gorgeous image is Spring Bringer, from a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps collection die cut sheet from The Hobby House. These are great for quick cards and oh so cute too. I added some Stickles to her wings to add to the sparkle.

The sentiment is from the Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments at Lili of the Valley. I go to these sentiments all the time, they are perfect for fairy and girly cards. I added a bit of colour and glitter and matted it onto a smaller Lacy Circle and sanded it back once again.
The whole card was topped of with some Aster Daisy's, 15mm Roses, Hip Rosebuds, 25mm Open Roses and finally some Rose Leaves. The little twiddly-viney bits are made from the wire stems I cut off of the flowers, which have been spiralled around my pokey tool.
So there we have it, my first over the top girly card lol :0)
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Love and hugs
