House Mouse Challenge 114

This is my last entry for the House-Mouse & Friends challenge blog guest designer spot for the month of February, and I've had a wonderful time! Thanks ladies for the invitation to do this - the pleasure has been all mine :)
Lori has given us the challenge this week to create something with "Sugar and spice, and everything nice" or to create a special project for the little girl in your life. Lori is about to welcome a new grandbaby into the world so congratulations are going out to her!
I'm using this adorable image from HM along with a HM sentiment for my card. The coloring was done with Copics,and I used a pink glitter marker to draw a line inside of the dies before cutting. I used a piece of unknown dsp from my stash along with some ribbon and heart brads. The sentiment was done with a SB grommet tag die, and the image panel was done with a SB labels eighteen. The embossing was done with the Sizzix curlique and hearts ef set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful week!
