Pink Cute and Girly

I'm a bit late with my post for By The Cute and Girly 2 days ago, but I haven't been feeling very well these last few days :( Better late than never though!
The challenge theme this month is "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (use stars on your project or be inspired by a nursery rhyme). 
We have 3 great sponsor again this month.

giving away a £10 gift voucher


 giving away 3 digital images of the winners choice.

Crafts and Me also gave the design team some image to play with, so of course I had to use on on my card because I love their images :)

I was planning on going down the Christmas route with stars like some of the design team have done, so I coloured up a Christmas image, but when I went to make my card with it, I somehow got a black mark right across the image! I think it came off my paper cutter as the previous day I had been cutting paper that had been made with marbling inks- serves me right for not cleaning it afterwards I suppose!
So that image went in the bin and I just couldn't be bothered going through and printing another one, so I coloured another image that I had already printed to use on another card and forgot about the Christmas theme and just went for stars instead.

I only have one pic today because my camera died on me after taking just one photo!

I promise my card is not all wonky like it looks here! As I was taking the photo, the card started to fall down and this is thats why the pic looks strange lol. I couldn't take another photo because my camera died, so had to make do with this one.
Anyway, just pretend that it's lovely and straight ;)

As I said the image is from Crafts and Me and is called "A Princess is born".
I love all the hair on this image :) I coloured with mainly Promarkers and used just a touch of Copics on the hair mixed with Promarkers. I also added a little bit of glitter, but you can't see it here.

I used an embossing folder that has tiny stars in the pattern (can't remember which make it is, sorry) and inked the embossed bits with distress ink and also glittered the embossing so it would stand out more :)
Not sure what make the patterned paper is either (I'm not doing very well here, am I? lol).
I also used a heart doily, most of which I covered up, some lace, star ribbon,  a pile of flowers, most of which are from Wild Orchid Crafts which of course I glittered, and I also added some little pink pearl hearts in with the flowers and to finish off my star theme, I used star shaped buttons which I threaded with some twine.

It feels strange not adding a close up pic of the image and only having one photo on my post, but hopefully I will be back to normal (whatever normal is?! lol) with my next card, which will probably be for Digital Tuesday in a few days as we are off out tomorrow to a firework display.
Lucky for us it's in our little village so not far to walk home in the cold :)

Hope you enjoy your weekend! :)
