A hanglar birthday card for my daughter

HI Folks! well my hubby came home from work early yesterday with sickness and is also off today, my little boy has had this bug on and off now since sunday evening and I'm just hoping it doesn't reach it's peak with me anytime over this wkend as I have work sat and race for life on sunday and don't fancy being ill for either of those!
To top that it's our daughter, Hiolette's, 9th birthday today and we are having 3 little girls around for tea so I don't fancy spreading the bug amoungst them!
This is the birthday card I have made for her using this super cute Hanglar image and following the fab sketch over at Lovely hanglar only this time.

I have used Prima sweet fairy papers along with this super sweet summer image. My lace and flowers are wild orchids with some prima flowers in there too. My ribbon and brads are from stash and my sentiment is crafty sentiments. My button and pearls are also from stash.

I have coloured my image with prismas and distress torn my edges whilst adding some antique photo ink, no cheesecloth here today lol!

I would also like to enter this into Pollycrafts ribbon and flowers challenge, Totally stampalicious anything goes, Simon says stamp and show torn edges, Top tip tues open, Simon says stamp bingo ( Flowers, brads sentiment), Creative inspirations blue, green and 1 other (white), My mums craft shop seeing spots and Delightful anything goes.
Thanks for coming by my blog again folks I promise to be more sociable soon, I guess thats the trials of having 3 children, normally 1 brings a bug home to share!
Hugs all

Rebekah- your card is truly lovely! I love your little stamped image and she is colorized to perfection. Your color scheme is amazing. All of the layering really is striking. The little flower running down the side are the perfect finishing touch. Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Hugs- Candy
