Birthday Princess


The card I am sharing today was made for my grand daughters birthday, and it was also my first rocker style card.  It turned out much smaller that I would have liked, and I have thought since of ways to make a larger rocker card.

The image is a digi  by Bits N Bobs called Queen Sweet Cheeks! (I have had the image for some time, and cannot find Bits N Bobs on line at all now)

She was painted in Twinkling H2O's and had beads adhered to the from of her overskirt, and along the hem of the underskirt.  The sentiment was curved, stamped, gold embossed and then trimmed and adhered to the image panel

This photo shows the gleam that the paints give.  The lace also has a metallic thread through it to accent the glimmer and shine on the image.
It was one happy little girl who received this.
The 'rocker' element of the card was a scalloped circle (Cut with a SB Die) in purple card, unfortunately hidden by the lace.

I am linking this to:

(Spellbinders scalloped circle die used)

I read the title of your post and thought, "But it's not my birthday!" I guess I can accept that I am not the only princess out there. I like the wee beads on the design and oh my! That shimmer! Very cool!!!
