Birthday Ava

Hello to everyone on this wonderful Saturday evening.
After a week of simple cards, I buckled down and went all out today...or I tried :)
I really had wanted/expected to add more to this card, but once I put the roses on, I knew it didn't need anything else.
This adorable image is a freebie from Krista at Saturated Canary called Ava.  Such a cute party image.  I colored her in with my colored pencils and added some glitter to her ruffles and balloon.  Then cut her out and mounted her on a scallop die cut.
I inked the edges of everything in a soft pink to help it all meld together.  I hand wrote the sentiment because the stamp I wanted to use wouldn't I tried to mimic it as best I could.  Turned out pretty good.  Could have been a bit straighter :)

I cut out the roses with my cricut, chalked the edges in pink and then quilled them together.  I added some glitter glue to the edges so that they also sparkled.  Gotta love glitter :)
The last touch was the corner rounds which I added a large pearl to the centers.
It's pretty much perfect.  The soft green and pink mesh perfect together.  Ava is so cute nestled in a bed of roses.  It has layers and details that haven't been on any of my cards this week.  I love it!
