Diva Sketch Challenge 3

Here's my creation for this week's sketch challenge from UDI. Come and play along with us.

I'm still new at this challenge thing and tend to take the sketches pretty literally as far as shapes and such go.

I put a blob of Crystal Effects in the center, then sprinkled it with a little Dazzling Diamonds. I decided to go with the itty bitty faux bow to add to the ribbon. I like the way it turned out. I cannot believe I'm saying that. I'm definitely my worst critic (aren't we all our own worst critic??) and am actually starting to like what I'm creating??! I hope others feel the same. :) Stamp Set-Think Happy Thoughts
Paper-Confetti White CS, Riding Hood Red CS, Pink Pirouette CS, Whisper White CS, Bella Rose DSP
Ink-Riding Hood Red Classic, Pink Pirouette Classic
Accessories--Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, Mini Glue Dots

I decided to go with a birthday card because my baby girl is TWO today. Here she is the day we brought her home from the hospital, all bright eyed. :)
Here she is now, standing in front of the fan letting her hair blow in the wind. Love ya baby girl!

Time goes by quick. Enjoy it.
