Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Girly No Pink

Well here's my first card of 2014 for Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - the challenge this week is 'Girly No Pink' and MUST include a stamped element.  I have included the frame I made to go with it. Both were made for my daughter's 25th birthday as she's a bit of a hippy. She turned 'hippy' after going to see 'Hair' at the theatre a few years ago. I loved making the frame, it was so satisfying and it looks so cute. I think I'll definitely be making more.

I struggle with layouts, so I hope I haven't made this too fussy as the papers are so pretty. Isn't she gorgeous, I coloured her with my copics and she was such a dream to colour in. Her background was stamped with flowers and different coloured pan pastels where used to give a pretty psychedelic look. I mounted this onto a punched border mat and, added my handmade flowers, gems and ribbon. The peace sign was cut using my Cricut.
