Hope You Can Cling To: Fight Like a Girl!

I'm Swimming for Katie, so be sure to check that post out, too!  Also, take a look at my Skipping Stones Design sketch card today - we're releasing a new set!
This is my sample for my Hope You Can Cling To challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today!  My challenge is to FIGHT LIKE A GIRL - create a card or project with girlie embellishments (including, but not limited to, pearls, lace, bling, ribbons, flowers, glitter, or whatever you can think of!).

I used a chipboard tag (Tag #02) from Creative Cuts and More as the starting point for my card.  The card base is 5 3/4" square, so you can se how big the chipboard tag is!  I painted it with white acrylic paint, and then brushed some pink paint on top of that.  I stamped the large Cling Jumbo Dahlia flower from Stampendous on the left part of the tag, and then stamped the I'll Be There sentiment towards the right side.  Using a glue pen (Martha Stewart) I added Silver Halo glitter where I wanted it on the sentiment.  Then I sprinkled Shabby Pink embossing enamel straight onto the tag, and heated it from underneath to melt it in chunky splotches.

I stamped the Dahlia again in the top right corner of my teal card stock, and used Clear EP to emboss it. I added the tag to the card using dimensionals, and a bit of bling in the corner.  My fab sheer pink ribbon has sparkly bits on the edges, and the lace adds a bit of contrast.

I hope you have time to come and check out my challenge, and play along!
