Cutie Pie DT Card - Polka Dots and Pastels

We're at the halfway point of our "Polka Dots and Pastels" challenge at Cutie Pie, this month we're sponsored by Little Blue Button, who very kindly gave the DT some pretty digis to play with.  I chose to use Dream Charlie, colouring her with my Promarkers.
 The paper are mix of Kanban, Cambridge and Lili of the Valley, Shabby Shack, I chose these because they were in pastel colours and had dots on!  I added a doily into the layering for a pretty, girly look.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut the fancy blue circle and Sizzix dies for the flowers and foliage, I added colour to the small flowers with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and added yellow gems to their centres.
The sentiment and banner were stamped with stamps from a Papermania Folk Floral set, and I finished my card with some layered ribbon with a matching bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Artistic Inspirations - #161 - Anything Goes
Crafting From the Heart - #121 - Anything Goes
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - #197 - Anything Goes
Crafty Friends - #36 - Use Your Dies

As You Like It - Your Trademark Style and Why - My style does vary, I like to experiment, but this is my fail-safe style, image coloured with Promarkers, ribbon with a matching bow and handmade flowers, along with pretty paper, I'm not sure why, I guess it's just my comfort zone!
