So many presents

Hello peeps
I've got another pink card to share with you today.

This image is 'So many presents' from the 'Party & Cake' Art Pad from LOTV (retired).  I've matted her on Nitwit papers - 'Always and Forever Solid' and 'Romance and Roses'. The sentiment in the corner is a clear stamp from LOTV 'Sentiments to Fit Scroll'.

To bling it up a bit I added glitter to the flower on her hat and the hem of her dress.

For embellishments I've coloured some plain white mulberry paper flowers with a pink alcohol marker (Marvy V750) and glued some sparkly gems in the centre. The large gem is coloured with Graph'It marker 9307 to make it darker.

I made 'leaves' from the petals of a large flower - I coloured them with GI marker 9303 and then dabbed them with PVA glue and sprinkled glitter on.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
