18th Birthday Handbags

Good Evening Crafty Peeps,

I've had this commissioned card made for a while but I didn't want to post it until the day of the birthday.  The brief was for something girly with handbags so I decided to go for a stamp from the new Docrafts Bellisima range.  It's a lovely feminine range with soft washed out colours but I decided to colour the the stamped image a teeny bit brighter with Promarkers and team it with some of the older Docrafts Capsule Collection papers instead.

The papers are from the Parkstone Pink and Lemon Sorbet collections and I have added faux stitching using a fine tipped pen and a pokey tool.  All the papers have been layered up with black card for definition.  The circle and scalloped circle dies are by X-cut and it's a first outing for my La La Land Heart Banner die which I've coveted for ages!  I've added plain pink and spotted organza ribbons, pink pearls and a computer generated number to finish the card.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
