Creative Card Crew #28

Over at The Creative Card Crew our 28th challenge is to make something girly.  I'm sure that you'll all enjoy this challenge using lots of ribbon, lace, flowers and,of course, pink lol.  While I love looking at people's highly embellished cards I have great difficulty in putting one together without it looking as though I've put glue all over the card and thrown everything at it in the hope that it will look good!!!

We have the wonderful Crafty Sentiments Designs 

I have used the rubber stamp, Sweet Treats, which I was lucky enough to win on a past Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge .  I have now sent this card to my niece for her birthday.  I hope that she liked it,

I stamped the image with a black Memento ink pad  and coloured using ProMarkers.  The lightest background paper is from My Mind's Eye and the darker one is possibly a Unity paper. Please let me know if anyone recognises it with the correct info. I used a Memento ink pad to colour the edges of the papers and the card with the image on it.

I decided to do something different to the inside of the card this time.  I used the Papermania Typography stamp Happy Birthday and printed it on to the same light background paper that I had used on the front.  I then cut the words out and stuck them down using Letraset Letratac which is a dry adhesive giving edge to edge adhesion
