Sweet Stuff - A Birthday card for my Granddaughter

It's hard to believe, but my grandaughter turns 6 pretty soon, so I thought I would get a head start on making her birthday card.
With 2 older brothers, she is a real "girly girl"
, involved in gymnastics and ballet, and loves pink, purple and butterflies.  She nevcr wears jeans or pants and always wears a dress.  Quite a little character she is.
Here's her card.

The image was stamped with memento ink and , yes, coloured with blendabilities.  I really miss them, and since mine were still working, I thought, why not?  The image was punched with a 1 3/4" circle punch and attached to a SU shaker frame.  Some In Colour sequins were added, and the shaker covered it with a circle of Window sheet die cut using the circles framelits.  The Melon Mambo scallop circle frame was made using a circle punch and a scallop circle punch.

This shaker frame was added to a Perfectly Plum banner die cut using the Banner Framelit. This was added to a strip of  Park Lane DSP which was matted with Whisper White card stock.  The sentiment "Happy Birthday", from Teeny Tiny wishes, was stamped directly onto the DSP using basic black ink

The base card is Melon Mambo, layered with Whisper White card stock, and then a Perfectly Plum layer embossed with the Decorative dots folder.

I used the Bigz Alphabet die to make the number Melon Mambo "6"

The banner art piece was added to the DSP.  Then it was  embellishments time- embellishments hopefully she would  love - gltter on both sides of the DSP, glitter on the number 6, some glitter dots around the shaker unit, and then 2 butterflies (with bling in the middle) at the bottom of the banner.
