All pink birthday

Good morning to everyone, hopefully this will be a quick post before I go do breakfast and then get lunch ready as Mum and Dad are coming over as it was their wedding anniversary yesterday.

Mum asked me to make a birthday card that was girly for my sister in law Claire, who has a birthday at the beginning of february, same day as my dad's.

I decided to do pink, as many will know something I do struggle with for some reason but I think I'm getting the hang of it, perseverance is the key I think.

I decided on this fab Sassy fashionista girl from sugar nellie and as Claire is mummy to her westie Simba this scottie stamp also from Sugr nellie works perfectly. I coloured her in Promarkers and added sparkle with sakura glitter pens. The background circle is fuchsia mirri card and to soften it I stamped it with a lace stamp from the stampman and used moonglow imperial gold purple powder also from the stampman.. The paper is forever friends and the pearls and Peel offs from my stash. The gold card was from some packaging so recycled, waste not.

The photos don't seem to show the colours well so I used blossom, carnation,fuchsia, mulberry and plum with dusky pink and satin for the skin tones and sandstone and caramel for the hair.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-

The sugar bowl-layout and birthday
Totally gorjuss-hot colours
Whoopsi daisy-pretty in pink
The corrosive challenge-lace and pearls
Alphabet challenge-L for ladies
Phindy's-lace and pearls
Totally papercrafts-add a heart
Do you stack up-think pink
