Birthday surprise

I'm slowly collecting Uptown Girl stamps from Stamping Bella.  Paisley has a pressie is one of the ones I bought recently.  I usually go for girlie pinks or purples but decided to experiment and do her in turquoise shades of ProMarkers.

I used papers from Lili of the Valley & NitWit Collections Solids - Snow Princess and Snow Princess for the layered papers.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley Art Pad 8 - Sentiments. I hand cut it then used the same turquoise ProMarkers.

After I'd mounted the stamped image onto the card  over the layers I decided where I was putting the embellishments.  Then, I edged the image with white pearl self adhesive gems to create a frame.

I wanted a flower cascade look so started with a large white flower which I bought in Hobby Craft yesterday.  I then used two different shades of turquoise flowers scattered down and across the card.

The final touches were some butterfly beads and a white paper butterfly which I'd bought from Lili of the Valley a while ago.  To this I added some pearl self adhesive gems.  

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Paradise of Stamps - Girly
Fantasy Stampers - Here Come the Girls
Addicted to Stamps - White and one other colour
Passion for ProMarkers - Make it feminine
Deep Ocean - At least one flower
