With Flowers in Her Hair

When I saw the {Pin}spiration Challenge photo I knew I had to make a card.  I had picked up this Going Somewhere Girl AlishBA digital stamp from Octopode Factory before and thought it would be perfect for this and my friend's daughter's 16th birthday card!  I loved the purples in the photo and she loves purple too!  Variations of purple were added using Copics.  I love Copics and am trying to expand my abilities...not there yet.

I added more bling than I have ever added on a card.  I knew she needed flowers in her hair and was glad to see the rhinestones worked!  I added a few more to make leaves, buttons on her shoes, and the center of the bow.  I picked this background paper because I felt the dots mimic the bubbles in the photo.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
