Sparkly Princess

Hi there! It has been awhile since I have given my stamps other than Sweet N Sassy a little love so I thought I would show you a card today using Magnolia. Now this card was "supposed" to be a birthday card for my daughter but I never finished it and her birthday was in August. I had the image colored and papers picked out but didn't get farther than that. I still wanted to make her a special card but decided to give it to her just because and not for any particular holiday. She is 6 yrs old and is a girly girl whose favorite color is pink. I hope she will be pleased with the outcome. Take a peek:

I made an easel card so she could keep it displayed in her room. Now, for some of the details for you. I colored the image with copics and cut her out (honestly not sure why I cut it out though)and popped her up with foam tape. I added silver stickles to the tiara, stardust stickles to the gloves and dress, pink rhinestones to the crown, pearls in the shoe straps, and I sponged sky ink around her. All of the edges were distressed, sewn, and trimmed with stardust stickles.

Here is a close up of Princess Tilda

The beautiful rose flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they too were accented with stickles. The pearl sprays are from Zva Creative. It is the first time that I have ever used them and I think I like lol. I will be needing more of those for sure- on the birthday list :)

The inside I decorated using Fancy Tags from Spellbinders and some silver sparkly stickers from my stash. I thought my daughter would really enjoy having it personalized with her name. I used ribbon, pearls, flowers, and stickles to keep uniformity in the card.

stamp- Magnolia Princess Tilda
paper- memory box and ctmh dp, Neenah white
accessories- Zva creative pearls, wild orchid flowers, copics, stardust and silver stickles, pink rhinestones, lace, pink satin ribbon, sewing machine, spellbinders fancy tags, lace doilly
