Beautiful card

I need an 18th birthday card for my niece for next week and I was looking for inspiration in my stash.
I found all of these lovely pinky papers as bits and pieces tucked in the bag that goes backwards and forwards to crops with me. They were all little bits left over from other projects.

First I inked the edges of  an 8x8 shaped card from Craftwork Cards using Memento Angel Pink and Lilac Roses.

I found the heavy acetate shaped sheet stashed with left overs. It comes from Glitz, from the Beautiful Dreamer range.

The papers are a mixture of 7 Gypsies, My Minds Eye and Glitz.

The ribbon is also from Glitz.

The roses and sparkles are from my stash.

Finally, the pale pink background paper is stamped with Memento Angel Pink using the bird cage from the Kanban Peacock set.

The bird cage is also stamped in Lilac Roses and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The background flowers have been stamped in Versamark, Memento Angel Pink, Lilac Roses and Rose Bud. Some have also been heat embossed.
The birds also come from the Kanban Peacock set. They have been stamped and embossed, then cut out and attached with sticky pads.
The final touch (apart from the gems!) was to add more sparkle with a Wink of Stellar pen.

Not sure how this will go down as an 18th birthday card, but I like it!!!
