Happy Birthday, Girly Girl!

My niece turns six this weekend. (She shares a birthday with Harry Potter. How cool is that?) My fave first grader is, quite possibly, the girliest girl in the universe. That doesn't mean she's a weenie, though. Carlie will give a kid holy what-for without mussing her coif or her manicure. That's why I picked this cute little girl from Tiddly Inks for her birthday card. She's got attitude.

It also serves for the challenges at:
Aud Sentiments - Use a sentiment to make someone smile. She'll like this one.
Tip Top Tuesday - Make it Girlie
Totally PaperCrafts - Bling it Up. Drat. Just realized I forgot to put the pink jewel on the sentiment. I'll have to fix that before I send it. I love the blingy ribbon, though.
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Free and Easy
The Play Date Cafe - Use this color palate: - use this sketch:
All of this girl's sketches are way fab! Totally worth a look!

The recipe:
Images (the border, girl, and sentiment) -  Tiddly Inks
CS - Bazzill
I made the flowers myself using a Cuttlebug kit. While quilling them is a bit of a pain in the tookus, it's a huge money-saver for me. I can make as many as I want, in whatever color I want, and adjust the size within reason. Definitely a worthwhile investment.
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Doily - Wilton at AC Moore
