Second Post Today ~ Challenge #193 - All Dressed Up ~ Sentimental Sundays GD card

This is my second post for today, Please take the time to scroll down and check out my DT card for 613 Avenue Create.It's now late evening here and I think I'm going to have an early night (unusual for me, but I'm tired!)  Our youngest son arrives home tomorrow from Vietnam where he has been visiting his wife for the last two weeks. They are still waiting on her visa - it's been hard on them being apart for the last 8 1/2 months. They were told it would take at least 9 months so hopefully the visa will come through soon. I'm sure it won't be easy for them to say goodbye today when he heads off to catch his plane home.
Today is my second week as GD at Sentimental Sundays and this week the theme is "All Dressed Up" - add sparkles, bling and buttons.  Oops, I didn't read that properly - I just went with the All dressed up bit as I mainly do CAS and the flowers and netted ribbon would be things I don't use much of. If you join the challenge, don't forget to add the embellishments that I left off, lol.
The sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up Stamps

Here is my card, I've used my favourite colour purple and added green ( a favourite combo) and cream
I paper pieced the skirt ( I added a little bit of shading with a couple of Copic Markers), blouse and the headband.

SU Certainly Celery cardstock
SU Wisteria Wonder
DP is from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad Lilac Avenue Collection
Image is Wear With Style (a set of 4 images) from All Dressed Up Stamps - paper pieced
Sentiment is from SU Express Yourself
Doily from stash
Pearls from stash
Net ribbon from stash ( I bought this last year and have been hoarding it, lol)

Flowers are from Prima (I think)
Tag Die is a freebie with magazine purchase
Nestie Die - Standard Circle small   (these  two diecuts are on the inside of the card)
                 - Big Scalloped Circles - small

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - February
Come and Get It Challenges - Make It Girly
Dream Valley Challenges - Tag You're It  ~ must use a tag

I'm off to get some "beauty" rest. I have our youngest grandchild to babysit tomorrow, Laurie comes home in the morning and our eldest daughter (very pregnant, lol) is picking him up from the airport and staying to play with a shadow box. She wants to add a couple of photos and the flamingo's they used on their cake from their engagement party. They had a themed engagement so everyone came dressed as something or somebody starting with an F which is the first letter of her married name. I suppose she will want to do some of their wedding photos at some stage. It's taken her this long to do the engagement ones so it will probably not be anytime soon, lol.
Hope you head over to Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog and join in the challenge and don't forget the embellishments and a sentiment too.
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,
