Girlfriend birthday


It's Cosmo Cricket week over on 365 Card Blog, so I decided to kick it off with a doubled up card for these two challenges~~~the Super Sketchy Sunday and So Girly .   I loved the unusual shape of the sketch and when I was looking through my images, this Lily Tomlin character reminded me of the oval in the sketch.  She was stamped on GP white, her dress paper pieced, nails and lipstick courtesy of Copics.  I added a big ruby 'gembrad' as an earring.  The headset is cut and left to be somewhat popped.I finished it off with both Girlfriend (Hampton Art Stamp) and happy birthday stamps (unknown), I added an iridescent blue green ribbon and a vintage red button which has real thread tied through.  The Cosmo Cricket background paper and dress piecing is from Hello Sunshine.

So let me know what you think, I know it's not the pinky girlie, girlie, but I thought it was more of the grown up confident gurly,gurly!  And by the way, this card is being delivered to a real girlie today!  We're gonna celebrate a big birthday!!!
