All Dressed Up - Inspiration post

Hi everyone,
Anyone else got the January Blues like me. I love Christmas so much I always feel a little sad that its all over now for another year. Anyway to cheer us up lets have a look at another gorgeously sweet stamp from All Dressed Up. This stamp is extra special for me as it is my daughter Anna! I asked Wendy to design me a stamp based on my daughter. These are the photos I gave Wendy to work from:
I also told Wendy that Anna lives in her Converse and is never without her iPad in her hand. Well I was just blown away when Wendy came up with this little cutie
Everything is just so ANNA! even the shorts over the leggings, even though I didn't tell Wendy that this is what Anna wears all the time!
I was originally going to make a card with the image on but as its not Anna birthday until June I went for something a little different:
The plaque is a thick cardboard about 12" long and 6" high. I used my black copic to colour the outer edge and stuck hot pink gems on every scallop. I used the Cameo to cut out the writing and also to make the swirls and the rolled roses. I then used black and hotp ink ribbon to create a bow and a loop to hang it up with.
I coloured the image in with copics and promarkers.
The  digi is now on sale on the All Dressed Up Etsy page.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
