Hi everyone! Today is my middle daughter's 6th birthday so I thought we would celebrate! First, I will show you the card I made for her then I will show the blog candy.
I first stamped my swing and then colored it with copic markers. Once colored I then created the sky behind the swing by using my homemade cloud template (a scalloped oval punched out of acetate) and sponging with sky ink. Next my princess was stamped, colored with copics, cut out and accented with stickles. The princess was then adhered to the swing with pop dots. I colored the rhinestones inside my flowers with my V15 copic marker to make them purple. Never tried it before but boy do I like it! You can make a rhinestone the perfect color to match your project- woo hoo. Now I don't have to buy bling in EVERY color LOL. The matte around the princess and the sentiment as well as the hearts were painted with lilac shimmerz. My layout today was the sketch challenge on SCS that I flipped vertically.
stamps- high hopes princess, swing, sentiment
CS- PTI shimmer white, plum pudding, dp
accessories- lilac shimmerz, rhinestones, pop dots, stickles, bridal confetti flowers, satin ribbon, copics (V12, V15, V17, E00, E50, R20, Y21, Y23, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E25, E27)

ETA: I just had to share this. I gave my daughter her card and she loved it. What is sweeter though is that she has show and tell at school tomorrow and she wants to bring her princess card for her show and tell item. Is that not the sweetest thing? It just warmed my heart.
