You're fabulous!

And all of my blog mates are!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend - it was cold but sunny in south east England yesterday and we went for a brisk walk along the coast.  Very invigorating, I can tell you!

Onto today's card.   I wanted to make a thank you card for my 18 year old niece and this Lil Lolita stamp is just perfect for this age group and was dying to match her up with this funky paper!  The CC Designs sentiment is perfect for it, the inside says "Fashion can be bought, style one must possess" - brilliant!

I am submitting my card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Nutmet
Stamps: Tickled Pink Lil Lolita 60s Mod Ivy, CC Designs sentiments

Mediums: Copic Sketch markers
Accents: BasicGrey buttons, Bazzill floss, American Crafts ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities label die (inside card), Martha Stewart border punch
