Girly and Glam

I was asked to make a card for a lady to give to her daughter for her eighteenth birthday and here's what I came up with, I hope she likes it.
 I used a Papermania Strictly Party stamp that came free with Creativity Magazine last year, I think it's perfect for an eighteenth birthday and is great fun to colour, which I've done with Promarkers.  After colouring, I added a ton of glitter, some of it Glamour Dust and some of it black Cosmic Shimmer glitter, along with pink gems and Anita's 3D Gloss on her hair and cocktail glass.
The patterned papers, sentiment and number stickers are from the Strictly Party A4 Ultimate Pack, I added some Star Dust Stickles to the diamond design on the numbers, Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to the edges of the paper, all matted with black paper for maximum impact.
To finish off, I stuck on some tiny punched butterflies, a pink bow, gems and pink nail heads.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Graphicat - #25 - Sketch, I rotated it
Wags 'n' Whiskers - #103 - Girly Birthday
DRS Designs - #68 - Butterflies
Fab 'n' Funky - #169 - Lots of Pink
ABC - M for Make It Sparkle
The Craft Garden - Recipe, I used ribbon, patterned paper and the colour pink

Allsorts - #205 - Add Some Sparkle
