Girly Sentiments @ Aud Sentiments

Another great fortnightly challenge has just begun on the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog, so go and check that out on the blog! This challenge we're are looking for....

A card or project with the sentiment for a girl

This fortnight we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

Here's a little info about The Paper Shelter:

Paper Shelter produce high quality digital images. Here they explain how the process begins...  
It all starts in the traditional manner: With a pencil and a paper.
We always have a list of ideas for our drawings. Depending on our desires, depending of the season and taste of our customers, a new image is drawn.
Not all drawings always go to the second instance. Sometimes we left them archived until a better time. So, counting the drawings that were already traced and those that are pending, today, we have many folders full of images and projects :o) A truly "Paper Shelter"!

If you have the time - pop over to HERE to find out how the process continues - its fascinating!  Quite an education for anyone who has spent time using digi images but never realised all the hard work and love that goes into them!

The prize for this challenge is a $20 gift certificate which is awesome! Thank you so much!

So for this fortnight's challenge, I created this card below:

I created this card using my absolutely favourite cardstock - caramel linen cardstock and layered this with various paper from Dovecraft's Fairytale Princess 6 x 6 paper pad. I used white lace crochet from Wild Orchid Crafts just underneath the image and used some pink cotton lace on the card to use as curtains as the image is focused on a window setting. I used some white bows in the corner of the card and used the Sizzix lace border die sizzlit for the top of the curtains on the card. I used a doily lace border punch from Fiskars for a panel for the bottom of the card, and the sentiment Birthday Wishes was stamped using Lawn Fawn's Harold ABC stamp with Momento's Tuxedo Black ink. Very girly, I think - quite like the result!
