Just for girls

Well I'm barely going to make it for my favorite challenge blog. The dead line is within hours. It's been a ruff week. We got a new puppy and she is a handful. I'll tell ya more about here later. For now I want to get my card posted.
It's challenge #32 over at the friday mashup .   It's let's here it for the girls


This weeks challenge is to mash up a girly theme with your favorite technique. My favorite technique is embossing and I love pink, flowers and butterflies. So I decided to put them all together.


I used certainly celery and pretty in pink. The stamps I choose are simply soft and kind & caring thoughts.
I embossed the background with swiss  dots and for my butterflies I used the beautiful wings embosslits.Then accented them with a few pearls and tied on a green swiss dot grosgrain ribbon



I think this card is pretty girly and I'm proud of how it turned out. I hope you like it. Be sure to go over to the friday mashup and check them out.
Bye for now and happy stampin

This is so pretty, Karen! I love the butterflies (and they're girly), and I love that flowering branch, too. The green and pink together are very girly, and the polka dots are just precious.
