Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #50 -Inspired By A Nursery Rhyme!

Happy Friday all! 
And this Friday it's time for another fun challenge over at "Fairy Fun Fridays"!! This time around we are asked to make something that is inspired by a nursery rhyme!

For my card, the nursery rhyme I was inspired by is...

"What are little girls made of, made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice, and everything nice,
That's what little girls are made of."

The adorable image I used for my card is called "Baby Emily" and can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE! 
And yes I added some "Glossy Accents" to her cute glasses...but not only that, I added some "Stickles" and "Glossy Accents" to her pacifier too to bling it up a!!

I think I went just a little crazy with the bling on this card...what do you think?

And I continued with the theme onto the inside of course...

PAPERS: Textured cardstock in lavender and violet and glittery textured cardstock in beige all from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections" and "KiMemories".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "Prairie Fairy Designs" and the sentiments were handstamped and are from "MSE".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Tuxedo black ink from "Memento" was used to stamp the sentiments.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Purple pearls, pink rhinestones and pink buttons.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" with Argyle embossing folder, "Spellbinders" machine w/ scalloped rectangles dies and "Bazzil Basics" flourish swirls template used to place the rhinestones.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with beige color thread. Image was 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue and glossy accents were added to the image for even more sparkle and depth
