Pretty as a Princess

My bestie's daughter turns 8 very soon. I wanted to make her something very special as this will be the last thing she receives from me before she leaves to Singapore on the 15th Jan. Now being nearly 8...and a girly-girl...she LOVES pink, purple and princesses. Hmmmmmmmmm (clunk, clunk, CLUNK!!!!)

I have not utilised Princess Anya for a long time, so I worked around that...whist also trying to maintain my crafting resolutions!!! So....with the brief I had, here is my card....

I did such a happy dance when I put the last touch on the card!! I busted out mu much neglected Nesties for this card (Fancy Tags and Ovals) which also hepled carry the oval/spiral theme through from the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I paper pierced her dress with the Tea Party DP and firstly painted her star and crown with bright yellow watercolour crayon and then blinged it with Kindyglitz.

I cut Princess Anya out and mounted her on a white Nesties Oval. That and the Fancy Tag scroll sat up on dimensionals.

I finished off the embellishments with some small paper roses. I think they were the perfect touch. Debbie P uses them all the time in her cards and i have admired them for so very long...so thanks Debbie for that creative kick in the keester!!

I have kept Creative Resolutions towards pink, and using things in my stash (flowers, Nesties and Princess Anya)...so I am still ontrack...Woo Hoo!!!! I am also gunna enter this card in a challenge that Bizzy Becs has put forward to utilise Spellbinders Nestabilities (aka Nesties). She has some great specials on them till the end of the month.
