Girls just wanna have fun!

Now that you've got that song stuck in your head I'm sure you won't find it too difficult to guess what the theme for this week's challenge at The Octopode Factory. !!
Yep, it's time to get girly :)  My immediate reaction to a girly theme is to grab some pink and I didn't make an exception this time - get ready for a hit of pink, guaranteed to wake you up!



Meet Jolee, available here and doesn't she suit that tiara?

I mentioned in a previous post that I was keeping it simple when it came to card layouts and this is another example of that - just a simple computer printed sentiment and a mat of hot pink cardstock and the image of course!  Her tiara is just a sticker from my stash but get this, the manufacturer is Jolees - spooky coincidence  (can you hear the Twilight Zone music playing?)

I would like to enter her into the following challenges -

Many thanks for popping in and have a very happy friday!

Sometimes less really is more. This is one of those cases.

Great card. Such a fun image and so beautifully colored.

The tiara is the perfect crowning touch. (Pun intended).

Oh, shoot, Dawn, why did you have to mention the Twilight theme music? Now that's all I can hear in my head. :^P
This is another fun image from Octopode. I love it! And another great CAS design! (I can't do CAS; I am compelled to add stuff.)
Really cute sentiment, too!
Hugs,
Penny

Well since she and the sticker share the same name how could it not be a perfect embellie for her little pink haired head. :-) Fab and fun! Hugs!

Hi DAwn!
I love the bright colours of this card, you've coloured her beautifully and the pink mount is the perfect finishing touch!
From reading some of your other posts, I too have 2 much loved and used stamps both from the 50p sale bin from years ago and everytime I use them I get a rush that only a great bargain can give you LOL!
You have a lovely blog :-)
