A Mardi Gras Birthday

This is my post # 100 ;o)

My stepdaugthers 17th birthday is comming up soon. She loves pink, so I thougth this might be a good opportunity to combine this color with some challenges.

Helene blir snart 17 år. Da må jeg jo ha et kort til henne. Hun er veldig glad i rosa, så da måtte det jo bli rosa da ;o)

I am not sure about the rules here but this card is made after the sneak peek of the MMSC # 41 sketch. It is also for the DSCB # 3, FFTC # 53 and OSAAT #1.

DSCB # 3 says Mardi Gras. I have no knowlegde about Mardi Gras. So this is I guess a long shot, but the ekstra bling and things I can do ;o)
The challenge said to use either 3 or 6 embellisment ( or more if you like).

I have used: Brads, Flowers, Rhinestones, Lace, Ribbon, Pearls (beads), Glitter, Raindrops and then of course there is the shoes... I think they are so cool that they should count for an embellishment on their own ;o)

Jeg benytter sjangsen til å delta i flere konkurranser.

The FFTC # 53 Said to make an Easel card.

The OSAAT # 1 Said to use some kind of stichces. Jet another long shot, but the pink paper has a stiches pattern.... That counts rigth? ;o)

It is aslo for Brag Monday #21 over at the Graphics Fairy.

I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow with the link to MMSC#41.

The image is a very lovely girl balancing on a champagne bottle. That is kind of Mardi gras spirit, isn't it? I got that image from the Graphics Fairy.

The background paper har a lot of pink shoes on it. Very girly ;o)

I decided to go with the shoe theme, and added lots of shoes.
The sentiment is from Stempelglede.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice evening!
