18th Birthday in Pink, Black and Bling!

I was asked by a family friend to make a card for her to give to her Daughter, this is what I came up with...

I started by colouring the Gorjuss stamped image with Promarkers (Pastel Pink, Antique Pink, Black, Cool Greys 1, 3 & 5 & the Blender Pen) I used some papers from DCWV Black & White Prints and Dovecraft's Charcoal Prints for the backing along with some printable papers which I punched circles from. The verse was cut using a Nesties Label die and I used Nellie Snellen dies to punch the frames from thick silver miri card, I think the silver really sets it off. It's really hard to show in the piccies but I coloured the "18", the word "Daughter" and the flower in her hair using a quickie glue pen and added some glamour dust, it looks really pretty and sparkly, just to give it some extra sparkle. I added lots of little diamantes to bling it up as I'm sure every 18 year old girl likes bling (well I hope so, it's a while since I was 18!)
