Sweet and sassy 16

A friend asked me to make a card for her to give to a 16 year old. Once before I made a card with a feather and she particularly liked it, so I made this one using a bright pink feather.

I thought I would make an easel card (my second one so far) - they seem to be one of the 'in' things atm, although I also see on the blogs that 'step' and 'side step' cards are 'in' as well!

Anyway, back to this card - which I must say made a change from making Christmas cards - the front papers are DCWV and the ones for the base and inner 'triangle' are BG euphoria.

I made the card to meet the requirements of the commission, but it so happens that it meets these challenges:

Project Tuesday: 'easel card'
Ildi Co 6: 'black and bright'
Pink elephant 43: 'colour me wonderful' - use your favourite colouring medium - copics to colour the girl stamped image
Gingham Girl's word of the week 15: 'fulgent' - dazzlingly bright
Little red wagon 5: 'heavy metal' - the charm shoes are metal
Quixotic 5: 'be charming' - the metal charm shoes, used as a 'stopper' for the front of the card
Simon says: 'so charming'
Cute card Thursday 89: 'swirly girly' - it's definitely 'girly' and there are black PM sparkly swirls
Tellen's place 1: 'embellishments' - late for this, only just found it
Frosted designs: 'scallop' - around the sentiment
Stamp something: 'glitzy somethings' - the shoes are very glitzy and there's a stamped image (the girl)
Kraftin' Kimmie 8: 'touchy feely' - completely different textures of the feather and the metal charm shoes
The crafty pad 48: 'a triangle' - at lease one triangle or that shape card - you can see the triangle when the card is side view

Edit: Jane asked what the image is - it's a download from Charmed Cards & Crafts: 'girls about town' set.
