Doodled 20th birthday card

I've made this card for a friend's daughter. I wanted to make something that looked fun and bright, so after gaining more inspiration from the latest great sketch over at The Sweet Stop blog, I came up with this. It looks better and brighter in real life, and it's very dimensional as it has been Pinflair glued to the max. I used the cheap stack of WRMK spring papers I bought from TK Maax a while ago, distressing all the edges with a pair of scissors. I then doodled round all the edges with a black Letraset pen.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
The Sweet Stop: sketch and stars
CES Challenges: embellish me more 
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday: birthday card
Creatalicious Challenges: anything goes
One Stop Craft Challenge: Girlie
