18th Birthday card

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a card I've just made for one of my daughter's friends. I know she won't see it cos they're away in Malia at the moment, lucky things....
The image is a lovely freebie from Saturated Canary which I've coloured using copics. I'm loving these new pens. I've added gems to her hair and glossy accents to her lips. The flourishes are Cherry Lynn. The backing paper is Provo craft Bitty Scrap Pads Tropical colours and I've matted everything with black card. The base card is shocking pink. I've added a LOTV sentiment matted with a Spellbinder die. The roses on the ruffled lace have been glittered with glamour dust, which I'm now wearing! The pearls on the flourishes have been heat set and I've added a couple of heart pins with extra pearls.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
The paper shelter - glitz and glimmer
Divas by design - flowers
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
MilkCoffee Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (sentiment, digi, lace)
PaperPlay Challenges - layer it up

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
