Peer pressure can be very difficult - a teenage girl who really loves pretty colours and girly treats may find herself among a group of friends who all decide to become goths - or vice versa. And sometimes they need to be reminded that it's perfectly OK to be who YOU want to be, not who other people think you should be.
So that's the thinking behind this card, which could be a "thinking of you" card for a teenage girl having a tough time, or simply a birthday card.
The image is a Crafters Companion one which I stamped and masked, then used Promarkers to create the background. I removed the mask and then coloured the image keeping to shades of grey, apart from the eyes.
The background paper is a very VERY old piece from my stash. It originally came from a Dawn Bibby kit, and I bought it as part of a de-stashing bundle on ebay many years ago, so I don't know exactly how old it is. I've added ribbons from my stash to add to the outward girliness, and a very appropriate Dylusions sentiment.
