A Princess with A Gift...




This Sweetheart comes bearing gifts....
I hope everyone is having a lovely Friday and looking forward to the weekend! I was able to share my morning with a cardmaking friend! {waving} Hi BB!

My card today is for a little princess and I've attached a little charm for her charm bracelet! Can you believe using a charm was actually on a challenge for today? Too fun!

So, let take a look at the card....walk with me...
The image is, of course, one of the lovely Anki's Sweethearts-Victoria, sold exclusively at SCACD! She's wearing a Prisma colored gown with a dazzling diamond insert. Her jeweled necklace is colored with white gel pen because I smudged it with too much pink! lol Hopefully you can see her delicate wings. I allowed them to blend into the background giving an illusion of a butterfly princess! I love these wings, they are so versatile! (and on sale for 50% off right now!)

Since I'm staying with Susana's Custom Art and Card Design team as a guest for the month of July also, I wanted to keep you up-to-date on all that's happening there! Well, first of all, did you see the post prior to this one???

Hi Maria, sorry I've not been around over the last week, what with being away in Scotland last weekend at the wedding and an incredibly busy week workwise, I've not had a lot of time for anything this week :( you have made the most amazing creations over the last week and I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with your blog tonight :) congratulations on your DT position with the Cutting Cafe, I absolutely love the little notelets and card you created they are awesome :) we are having a bit of a heatwave here in the UK at the moment and yesterday was almost unbearable. We had a thunderstorm overnight which has cleared the air a bit but it is still very warm. Hope you have a wonderful weekend :) Donna x
