Pink & Girlie - but no flowers!!

Good afternoon. I was asked by a friend to make a card that was Pink & Girlie - but with no flowers - I know I should have asked why but I didn't and for a while I just thought how odd - don't all girlies love flowers????
Anyways I knew I wanted to make a card for the Lili of the Valley challenge and also knew I wanted to ink up one of my new LOTV stamps that hasn't been inked yet - shame on me!!! I had a rummage through various drawers. my digi papers etc and came across these perfect Design Papers for this image - and they were a freebie from a crfat magazine - result!

I decided to colour my image with distress inks this time - using mainly Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass.
A liberal dose of Glamour Dust has been added to the edges and a few tiny adhesive pearls to finish off the scalloped mat.
Sentiment generated on the PC.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

LOTV - Circles
Secret Crafter - Sweet Treats
Sweet Stampin' - Oh so Girlie

The sun is shining here in Gloucestershire today - feels like a lovely Spring Day - hurrah!
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
Thanks for popping by.
