Sparkly fashionista

Good afternoon one and all and hope it's a great Monday for everyone even those who aren't off for the end of the Easter weekend and are at work skiving by checking out blog land.

The card I have to share today is a commissioned card for a granddaughter, the young lady in question I think is 19 or 20 not sure which so hope she likes this. Her grandmother normally gets her one of my cards but last year they were away on holiday and she bought one to send and it didn't go down well at all. The lady commented how funny she thought that was, as none of the girls' family ever send cards for the rest of the family birthdays but then feel put out if they don't receive nice cards when its their birthdays.

I decided to have a play with my Sassy girls, I did think I'd have my new ones to play with as I ordered them a week last Saturday but as yet they haven't arrived, so tomorrow I will contact the house of sugar just to make sure they haven't got lost along the way. I coloured my wee girl in promarkers and used sakura glaze pens for her eyes and glitter decorations on her dress and socks for extra sparkle. The papers are scraps I'm trying to use up and I think the check is forever friends and the dotty pearls one is from Costco.
The flowers are from my stash as is the ribbon and the pins I made.
The background inside the card is stamped lace using a stampman stamp as is the 'granddaughter' and both were stamped using brilliance twilight ink and embossed with holographic powder.
