2nd Commissioned card

Hi this one I wasn`t sure about it was for a girl who is 16 , into make-up, fashion ,shoes oh and Handbags
I asked my sister and my daughter when she was down on Tuesday as I thought something was missing ,My sister said put a Bow on it and my daughter said put the same as the bottom accent on the top right side ,but silly me forgot to take a second picture so you are going to have to Imagine it there ,I put Happy Birthday on the accent,well here it is ,sorry for going on ,

Card Sock : Centural pearl card : Background freepapers from mag (shoes, handbags, fashion )
Spellbinders : Label 28 , Venetian accents,sewing elements , Paper used for cuts freepapers & foundations
on the sewing elements I cut 3 paterns papers : 3 Black ,then trimed them up so they had a black stand ,
I then put ribbon pleated to make it look like a skirt ,
Stamp : Creative Expressions : Cosmic shimmer ,Pink

I did put some more cosmic shimmer glue on the bottom after I put the second accent up the top so it matched , it did look right once I had done this and the person who collected it on wednesday  love it ,

Thanks for stopping by
