My first Pink Petticoat card

I'm continuing to dip my toes in the digital waters, and after seeing Katina's wonderful cards on her blog, and finding out that Pink Petticoat had a sale on, I immediately rushed on over and bought a few bits and pieces. I've made three cards so far, two like this and another I'll share at a later date. I used Serif Craft Artist to rub out the 'for my' part of the sentiment and replaced it with 'for our'.
The sets I used from Pink Petticoat are the Mini Diva Doodles and Perfect Papers. My absolute favourite paper from this set has to be the white polka dot on a distressed black background. I can see me using this a lot. I love pink and black together. I also used seam binding from The Ribbon Girl which I ruffled, and my favourite scalloped edged cards from Craftwork Cards, which I must have used hundreds of times now, but keep going back to because they are just so good for girly cards. I've added lots and lots of glitter as these images are made to be blinged.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
CES Challenge Blog: anything goes
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Happy birthday
Craft and Me Challenges: anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers: no floral embellishments
Ladybug Crafts Ink: use our new stash
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges: here come the girls
