Victorian Birthday

Evening Folks
Back again to share my final make for today.
I have had a lovely day with my two girls and even managed to find some crafting time.  The girls decided this afternoon that they wanted to make some Easter cupcakes.  So out came the scales, ingredients etc.  As they are both quite good at cooking I knew the cakes would turn out fine.  I was slightly concerned that they may have left me the washing up but when I came down from cardmaking the kitchen was spick and span.  Such good girls.
I decided to make a girly birthday card to add to my stock.  The girls are always asking for cards so need plenty.

I got this gorgeous stamp set called Victorian Lady by Woodware a couple of weeks ago from The Craft Outlet near where I live.  Have been itching to use it.  I simply stamped and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Kept it quite simple by just adding a touch of colour to the hat brim and the bow.  The patterned paper is a new one I got from Papermania.  I used my trusty Big Shot to emboss the red panels.  Just love my Big Shot machine.  Added some ribbon across the centre, some pearls, feathers and flowers to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy - use sketch
Hotshot - Red
Crafty Ribbons - Black and white and one other colour
Divas By Design - Anything goes
Fab N Funky - Emboss it
Simon Says - use favourite tool (Big Shot)
Fashionista - Anything goes for girls
One Stitch At A Time - New something (papers, stamp)
Digi Doodle - Something new (papers, stamp)

Thanks for popping by and for any comments you may leave.
Take care
