Pink and Girly and a few challenges.

Hi all,
A quick post tonight to show you a commission card I have just finished.
The brief was, very pink, very girly, cute and glittery, first birthday and the name to be included.  Should be A4 in size!
Well, I just couldn't fit pink and girly with an image suitable for a first birthday so just went with the pink and girly theme.
I've never made a card this big before but I really enjoyed it, so here it is:
The image is from Tiddlyinks and is called Fairy Fae, isn't she beautiful?
So she is coloured with my promarkers and the card is backed onto a piece of pink card.  I used a corner punch to decorate the four corners, (although you can only actually see two of them properly!) and then added glitter in the punched out bits.
I used a combination of pink glitter and glamour dust on her wings.  I used my new Grand Calibur to add some die cuts, then added some pink and white flowers.  The two pink papers are from a Funky Fairy collection called Pink (sadly now no longer in existence)
The sentiment and name is done on the computer and backed onto the same pink card.  I added a die cut butterfly and a piece of fabby lace from The Funkie Junkie's Etsy shop.
I can tell you that the person who asked for the card was extremely happy with it and was quite close to tears!!  Success!!
