A Pretty Princess

Well, it's been a week of not visiting my blog very much as I struggle with afternoon shift!!  It still knocks me around even after all these years.  Might have something to do with the not being able to lie in bed all day but having to get up with the kids instead!  Oh well, no real complaints, just limited in computer time!

So it's with great pleasure I show these pic's of the card I made for my niece.  Like all little girls, she loves princesses.  So when I got an idea for a Princess card on Pinterest, well I got to work and made one.  I chose a yellow coloured dress (one of my favourite colours) inspired by Snow White!.

I drew (by hand believe that!!) a dress shape from So Saffron CS and embossed it with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  I cut a piece of white tulle to fit exactly over the skirt of the dress and used glue dots to stick it down at the waist line.

I found some lemony coloured chiffon type ribbon which I used to tie around the dress before adhering the dress to the Whisper White CS card base.  I love white and yellow together - so fresh and crisp too, if that makes sense ;)

I put a little blue gem on the top of the bodice to give it a little extra something.  I then made a matching purse form retired So Safron DSP, cut from the (retired) Tab Punch and the Small Oval Punch.  So cute!

I added a little Birthday banner stamped with the new Coastal Cabana inks and hand cut.  Not too shabby a cut if I do say so myself.  The greeting is from the Banner Greetings card set.

Thanks for visiting my page.  I hope you like my card inspired by designs on Pinterest.  And most importantly, I hope my gorgeous niece likes her card!!
