A Grown-up Grand-daughter

Our eldest grand-daughter celebrated her birthday this month and it's amazing how quickly time has just flown by.  She is such a young lady now (ears pierced and beautiful highlights in her hair) that a more grown up card seemed fitting. 
This is my very first attempt at using a Sweet Pea stamp and sadly the light during the evening is not very good and casts shadows.

The lace was given to me and the flowers I've coloured with a Copic pen. The flourish was cut on the Cricut and I used a Martha Stewart punch on the purple edge.  The glitter on the moons and her wings and dress are looking a little subdued with the light that was available

A big THANKS! to Melissa for updating her challenge lists, it's so helpful.

I would like to enter this card into the following:

What a beautiful card and what a lovely name the birthday girl has!

I love sweetpea stamps. They are more grown up without going over the top, like you say.

There were lots of anything goes on Pile it on. Have a look on my blog (the grandparents day one) if you can't find them.

Take care xxx
