Princess!

Hi everyone! Did you see the wedding yesterday? Wasn't it beautiful? Kate's dress was stunning and absolutely suited her to a tee, extremely elegant! And I loved when they were driving the Aston Martin- so them I think. I watched it with my Mum and we a cream tea afterwards just to be quintessentially British!

Only the one card today...

I used Mismatch Ketto for this card I've made for a friend's little girl. I think she looks very regal for all the royal themes going around blogland this week. I coloured her with a mixture of watercolour and lyra pencils and shadowed her with copics and some sponged ink. These gorgeous papers are by Basic Grey.

I'd like to enter her into:
A spoonful of Sugar- Royal knees up
Simon Says- anything goes
Stampavie- pearls
Charisma Cardz- april showers/may flowers
Daring Cardmakers- By royal appointment
Just Add Ink- add a flower
Papercutz-anything goes
Stamp Something- wings (she has tiny wings!)
Crazy 4 Challenges- 3 papers, 2 flowers, 1 button

Here is a close up! She's all blinged up as every princess should be!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); watercolour pencils; Lyra pencils; Copics; Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Flowers; Pearls; Stickles; Sentiment (freebie); Button & thread; Ribbon (recycled)

Just wanted to show you the gorgeous freebies I got from an order to Stamping Bella I received this week!!! Yes, these were the freebies!! Amazing huh?!

Hoping to get round to more of you this week. Been a bit tricky as Mum has been under the weather xxx

HI Steph I LOVE this card & its soooo wierd as I have this image & these papers & have used them together also, I always think it feels like you have a connection with a project when you have used the products yourself (or is that just me being starge?! haha) have a few of these ketto's & actually think they're very underused, you've just reminded me to get some more ink on a few!
