Challenge 6 at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Hello folks, can you believe its time for a new challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches} already? This week its my turn to design the sketch, its my very first attempt (eeek how scary lol!) so I hope you like it.  

This week our challenge is sponsored by Hobbystempels so pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my sketch and also find out more about the fab prize on offer :-)

I've used a lovely stamp from Whiff of Joy for my card, 'Confirmation Melinda' and coloured her with promarkers (of course she needed a little glamour dust too lol). She's matted on some pale pink glitter card. The bp is from Raspberry Road Designs, they have such scrummy papers and this is one of my favourites. I've added some mistletoe diamonds (stamp from Joanna Sheen) stamped on pink vellum with gilded ivory EP and a stickles border. The flowers are also cut from pink vellum (with a Marianne die) and have faux gems in the centres and lots of glamour dust. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft your passion: Anything goes
Colour Create: Pink Green and White
Come and Get It: Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy: Christmas in July
