Doodle Dress

My hairdresser just got engaged and her colors are going to be pink and white. Thought I'd whip up a little something to congratulate her.

I used the large flourish from "Doodle This" and the top of the dress image from "Bloomin with Happiness" to make the main image on the card. (both of these stamp sets are from Stampin Up). I colored with my Copic sketch markers (RV11, E04), and added some bling and mini pearl beads. I also traced over the hanger with a silver marker and used clear and pink stickles on the dress to give it a little sparkle.

The sentiment was from the $1 bin at Michaels and I separated it and used my tab punch. The edges of the tabs and the main image were sponged with SU's Rose Romance ink. The black and white photo in the top corner is a sticker that I've had FOREVER! I knew I saved it for a reason!! The little heart cut out is from a scrap of Love, Elsie patterned paper and the two round brads at the bottom were black and dipped in SU's Dazzling Diamonds.

Since this card is for my hairdresser, I've been trying to think of a cute saying to put on the inside. So far I've only been able to come up with, "Hope your marriage is full of "highlights". If any of you have some cute suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
