A 'Girly' Card

Hello again everyone.  Welcome to my blog.
My niece turned 14 a few days ago and I'd like to share the card I made for her.
The papers I used are My Mind's Eye's Lost & Found and Howdy Doody and Kaisercraft's Sweet Nothings.  Distressed all the edges of course and inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Placed a couple of torn and distressed paper pieces in between the layers for extra dimension.   The flower cluster is made up of  Kaisercraft and Prima roses.  The larger flower I made myself and I placed it all on a piece of gauze which was lightly coloured with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The leaves were cut using my Silhouette Portrait.  
 The large initial is an Alpha Thin from Papercraft which I covered with some of the paper, and the banner I made myself using a Kaisercraft Stamp.  The doily was very lightly edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
 I quite like the colours on this card and am happy with how it turned out ...
... hope my niece was happy with it too.
Thank you so much for visiting and I'd also like to thank those of you who have left me such heart warming comments in the past.  I really appreciate the support you give me.  Thank you so much.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.
God Bless.
