Dutch Dare Challenge - Girly card

I have made this card to join in this weeks Dutch Dare challenge where this week they are asking you to make a card for a girl. They have a fantastic prize on offer.

I have used a Papilio image and this little girl is called "Maya". Isn't she just the cutest with her gorgeous big eyes.
I would like to thank dear Jacqui for passing the above award to me. I was feeling pretty down yesterday so this certainly brightened my day.

Hope you are having a great week and finding a little time to craft.
Hugs,
