She Who Wears The Crown!

I have had lots of card making mo-jo this weekend; yay for me! Here is an easel-style card I have made using a Princess theme with blue and green tones. My stamp is "Princess Anya" from The Greeting Farm and I have coloured her with copics and added some sparkly glitter to her crown and star wand. My gorgeous 'bud and bow' ribbon and small bow are from Hooked On Craft. The small bow and all the flowers have all been spritzed with Glimmer Mist (of course!). I love the two-toned effect I got on some of the flowers. To get these colours I used Glimmer Mist in 'honey dew mist', 'pop rocks', 'fully purple' and 'spring rain'. I cut the crown (on the base of my easel card) out on my Cricut using 'once upon a princess' cartridge and added glitter and bling.

Let me know what you think!
