Sweet Flower Girl

Can you believe it??!! Another card from me in less than 24 hours?? That's what happens when my stamp desk is clean and I want to get inky :-)  Wouldn't have happened if I left the mess after yesterday's card. I NEED to start cleaning my mess right after making it!!

I used the super cute stamp "Flower Girl" from Whimsy's Time for Tea Designs collection on today's card. The background paper that she is layered on was hand stamped as well, using stamps from Whimsy's new set "All you need is love" and a large music sheet background stamp.

The image has been colored using copic markers, and fussy cut. I used distress inks to stamp the background. What you see stamped along the edges of the white paper is the same "amour" stamp that I used on the top right. I just love how this turned out.
The dark brown paper is from MME, layered onto a kraft card base. Added a little bit of glitter to the flower in her hair and the shoe laces, and some twine.


I was trying to decide who to give this card to, since Valentines Day is over. Then I was thinking...very soon I will be going to my first ever Bryan Adams concert. YESSSS!!! I am so excited about that, as he has been my most favorite singer since I was a teenager (and still is). We will be in row 4 right in the front part, and maybe, just maybe I can write a few notes inside and slip it onto the stage?? I know this sounds like something a teenager would do, but since I didn't get to see him then, I have to do it now, right? LOL .

Anyway, I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
