Not so GIRLY!

Yesterday was the oh so famous Black Friday and I spent the day home to my crafting and bogging. I must admit that I didn't have a babysitter or else I would of gone to at least one store to get my dose of madness!
Today I would like to share this card that I made for my niece. She is such a sweet girl and I love the way that she is not too girly; yet she still has her touch of girly. She will not wear dresses anymore but is not a total tomboy. So I made this card and tried to make it not so girly. The papers are Marjolaine from BasicGrey; I have layered my panels and given them a bit of a doodle on each one. Also added bling swirls, pearls, a great big bow, and  some buttons with cord.
When I first saw this image from Saturated Canary it immediately reminded me of my niece with those glasses and her big eyes and little smirky face. Her name is Ivy and you can find her HERE. I have colored her with Copics but did not jot down the colors...Sorry : ( Wish I had cuz I am really liking her hair.
 The inside has complimentary papers with ribbon band and the doodle lines also.
 The ticket sentiment is from Whimsy, stamped on kraft, inked around the edges and with a touch of bling.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
