Something girly

After I used this dress form the other day I thought I would try and do a set of cards in different colours. I don't think I quite pulled it off this time but I do like the colours which are my favs. I'm entering it into the Stamp something challenge which wants anything girly.

I've also made this card not for a challenge, but because I saw the idea on this blog - and 'cause I have the stamp had to give it a go. I've used Mirri card for the backing, not really a Mirri girl but bought a pack from QVC and it needs using! I realised that the colours I used all had matching MS glitters, so I just highlighted the middle panel by using a glue pen. Used the MS butterfly punch again - can't stop punching them out of any odds and ends, and then I found some butterlies that it fits over almost perfectly and used them on this card by putting three together, another idea I got from the same blog.
Off to watch Dawn B's TSV on QVC now.
