Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!! Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #52 -DT Card!

Happy Friday again all!! 
It's time for a brand new challenge over at "Fairy Fun Fridays" and you won't want to miss this one!! Our theme this week is "Here Come The Girls"!! And this brought Roberta's little Gillian to mind of course!

Here's a little inspiration to get you started...

Isn't little Gilly just adorable playing dress up! I had so much fun coloring her in too! You can find "Pretty Gillian" in the "Prairie Fairy Designs shop HERE! Pretty Gillian also brought a great song to mind which inspired my sentiment..."Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!". I also made a few other girlie sentiments inspired by this challenge! So be sure to check back in next week to snag them up!

I tried to girlie up my card as much as I I went a little crazy with my "Smooch Spritz"!! Not sure if you could see it from my pics, but I sprayed all the papers including the image and flowers! And of course "Stickles" too! Can you tell I love sparkle?!

I added a little purple eye shadow to her eyes with a bit of glitter and then glazed it with "Glossy Accents" over her glasses.

I've been playing with mesh on my cards lately and so I tried something a little different. I added a layer of mesh over the backing papers and burned all the edges to make it stand out a bit more, then stitched it to the papers. This is also the first time I tried a triple bow with my bow maker...I think it turned out lovely! I got those mesh leaves from "WOC" along with the beautiful roses and crystal stem.

I spent all my time and energy on the by the time I got to the inside I was a little I don't think I really did it justice...
