Sentimental Sundays DT post: Add Sparkles, Blings and Buttons

Hello! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!!!! there is no crafting for me this weekend as I'm away in Aberdeen visiting friends!

It's Sunday, and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays!!!!

This week, my fellow DT Sandy has chosen the theme:

Add Sparkles, Blings and Buttons
(plus a sentiment)

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up.

I love these images! they are all adorable!!!

So, come on, after reading about the great card I've made for your inspiration, hop over to Sentimental Sundays challenge, take a look at my fellow DTs cards for inspiration and join us!!!

All Dressed up kindly donated some images for us to work with, and I chose "Wear with Style".
When you get this image, it contains 5 files; all four girls together and individually.

This is the card I made for your inspiration:

I made the card in one of my favourite colour combinations: pink and yellow. I find it so cute and girly!

The papers I've used on this card are from: Papermania Capsule collection Spots and Stripes (the pink stripe paper behind image), First Edition Rose Carden (pink and white spots paper). the rest are freebies from craft magazine.
I also used as one of the layers a journaling card from Papermania called "Happy Days".

I distressed all the papers with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Tattered Rose.

As usual, I coloured the image with my Promarkers.

For the hair: Cocoa, Burn Sienna, Raw Sienna, Sandstone and Buttercup.
For the skin: Vanilla, Almond and Blossom as a blusher.
For the Dress: Antique Pink, Pink Carnation, Blossom and Pink Mittens.
For bow belt, shoes and leggins: mustard, Buttercup.

I added some stickles / glitter glue on the dress for the sparkly effect! (it's really difficult to see in the photo, but it's there, I promise!)

As part of the layering for the card I also used: a doily and a piece of mesh lace.
I also added some washi tape (clear with gold writing, I love it!) and a piece of lace and ribbon behind the image.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used the Marianne Createable leaves die for the leaves.
Buttons,rhinestones, lace, ribbon, bow and buttons are from local shops.

I created the sentiment on my computer.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order):
