Sweet Sixteen

Evening everyone, well had a bad day.  

Went to print some digis out and the silly printer has decided that its run out of ink! GRRR so I spoke with my neighbour and she has ordered some (we have the same printer and we have decided to 'bulk buy'!) And so, after speaking with a friend (who reminded me its her 16th Birthday Thursday) I decided to make her card tonight! Although I have a million cards to make, but need the digis to do them! 

And so one sat and raided the mountain of stamps I forgot I had, took out the inks (versa-fine), the embossing powder (clear), the heat gun and the WOJ stamps and created a new masterpiece! 

Ok so what else prompted me to go through my stamps was that I spent some much needed time on the internet earlier and visited the WOJ site, They had some sale items and so the mouse ran away with its self and clicked on the 'add to cart' button on a couple of items and then 'checked out' all by its self.... now how would that happen???

This is only my 2nd easel card, I feel its lacking on something but unsure as to what... If you have any ideas please let me know! Once I had stamped, heat embossed, coloured and cut out the image, I decided to mount her on a white scalloped circle cut with my nesties!

I coloured her with my pro-markers.  I used Sun-kissed Pink and Blush for her skin tone, her hair was coloured using Shale, Cocoa and Caramel, her top was coloured using Buttercup and Tulip yellow. 

The hearts and flowers were coloured with Poppy and her trousers with Denim Blue and Pastel Blue.  Her bracelet was coloured with gold and i put grey #1 around her wings.

I then used some 4mm red rhinestones around the edge of the scolloped circle, then added some small flourishes with two-tone 2mm rhinestones.  The ribbon is from my stash and I wrote 'sweet sixteen' with peel-offs.

I have entered this card into the following challenges;

Papertake Weekly - Have a Heart
Promarker Challenge - Let there be love
The Crazy Challenge - Lots of Love
Whiff Of Joy Challenges - Love is in the air

Well I hope you like her, I'm happy with her! If you have time please feel free to leave a comment with any advise! 
Thank You!
