Money can't buy you happiness!

Hi there,
Today I'd like to share with you a cute card I made for young lady turning 18 soon.

This card is a 6x6 cream card blank which I have added a baby pink smooth card mat. Then I've taken some patterned paper and after running it thorough and embossing folder I have stitched in opposite corners adding 3 seed beads to the last stitch for added interest.

I attached that to the card front and then added 3 banners picking out the colours in the paper. I used my Cricut machine to cut the 18. The stamp and its sentiment stamp I have had for a looong time and have no idea where it came from! I coloured her in using my trusty Promarker pens and then added her to a mat cut using a Spellbinder die, the sentiment too.
A few flowers and leaves to the bottom along with some pearls to finish off and there we have it!

I'm entering this card on the following blog challenges Ribbon Girl


Promarkerchallenge.  I hope this is ok as the challenge is use pink, there is quite a bit on there.
