Party Princess!

Here is an easel style card I have made featuring a gorgoeus stamp from Sugar Nellie called 'party princess'. I have coloured her with copics and some glossy accents. I just love her crown and little bear! I spritzed my flowers with Glimmer Mist (sigh! I just love Glimmer Mist!!!) in 'cherub pink', 'hot chocolate' and 'strawberry shortcake'. My cute trinket pin and pearls are from Hooked On Craft.

Spring Has Sprung!

I can't believe we are already up to challenge #7 at Hooked On Craft Challenges! Thank you to everyone who entered the last challenge; your papercrafts are fantastic! The challenge this time is "spring has sprung". Here in Australia it is starting to get a little warmer and flowers are starting to bloom. For my Design Team card I have used a very gorgeous little puppy with a sweet little ladybug stamp from Hooked On Craft. The wheelbarrow was cut out using my Cricut and 'walk in my garden' Cricut cartridge and embossed with my Cuttlebug. The cute little lady bug at the top was also cut out using Cricut and 'create a critter' cartridge. My bling, doily, trinket pins and flowers are all from Hooked On Craft. My red flowers were white but I glimmer misted them with 'mel's diner' and I spritzed my white flowers with 'irridescent gold'.
Join in the fun of 'spring has sprung' at Hooked On Craft Challenges!
