Another Dirty Challenge!

This is my submission for this month's challenge.
The guidelines:

Challenge Focus: Girls Young and Old-your main image must be or include a girl

Required Element: Something *SWEET* - you may interpret that any way you like.

Restricted Element: NO standard A-2 cards (4.25 x 5.5). Any other card size or type of project is OK.

I used the little girl from And Everything Nice for the focus image. My "sweet" element is the theme, as well as the Au Chocolate paper. And the card is 3.25x6. I coloured the main image with the SU markers. The celery streaked a bit on the dress, but I retouched it with the blender pen and it smoothed out nicely. Don't forget that you can use your blender pens this way! On the ultra smooth cardstocks they can reactivate the dye ink and be blended easily. Be sure to check out all the other submissions here.

Stamps: And everything nice, faux ribbon
Ink: palette noir, chocolate chip, blush blossom, regal rose, pretty in pink, certainly celery, wild wasabi
Paper: certainly celery, very vanilla, wild wasabi, chocolate chip, Au Chocolat DP
Accessories, etc.: oval nestabilities, blender pen, pop dot, mat pack, wide grosgrain
