Such a Cutie!

 Good morning. I am pleased to report that not only did I survive my induction at the gym but I actually enjoyed it - so much so I'm going back again today :o)

Before I set off though I thought I would share a card that I made as part of an order for a friend. This is for her daughter's friend who will be 5 on Friday - how time flies - it only seems like yesterday my friend's daughter was born and she is the same age as her friend.

 I took my initial inspiration for this card from the sketch at The Sugar Bowl as I knew I wanted to use one this gorgeous new Sugar Nellie stamp (again lol!!)
I coloured her with PM's and Fkexmarkers and added lashings of Glamour Dust to her wings.

Here's a close up of the image:
This also used:
DP's - Freebie with Craft Mag 
Marianne Createable Die - Branch Forest - inked with Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with Stamp and Bond and Sprinkled with Glamour Dust (love this technique)
Wooden Flower - coloured with PM and then blinged up the same as above and layered on top of Marianne Craeteable Open Flower
Adhesive Pearls - NEC stash
Sentiment - PC generated

Here's a close up of flower:
