Sweetest things

Here is the 2nd one for the day and probably my favourite!  I cannot believe I actually made this very 'sweet girly card' and what is worse is that I actually love it - the image and the colours!
I made it into a criss cross card for the challenge at Birthday Sundaes with the birthday sentiment on the inside of the card and have followed the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches which worked quite easily with this criss cross card.

the half scalloped circle is a flap so when you open up the card you can lift up the flap and lay it back down for the inside of the card! 
 
 here is a close up of little Brigitta ... isn't she gorgeous?

materials - AC bubblegum, robins egg cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup' and 'watermelon gazpacho' papers, Francheville textured pink paper; CC Design 'cute brigitta', MFT polka dot greetings; Stazon jet black ink; Marvy pens - blender 0, pale orange 16, dark brown 18, iris purple 55, citrus yellow 69, spring green 71; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles large; Creative Memories circle cutters; MFT little open scalloped edge die.
thanks for looking.
