Pink Princess


This is the first card I have made in a couple of weeks, after celebrating my wedding anniversary and catching up with friends and family over the  holidays.   It seems the gorgeous sunny weather is here to stay a little longer though, so yay! :D

Anyway, I made this card for a few challenges, but firstly for the Sugar Nellie PCP challenge .  This is a great little weekly challenge with some gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamps as prizes, and its held via a forum challenge, so we actually share ideas and inspiration, and well worth a look!..
This week the theme was pink, and I have been desperate to use this new manga princess stamp for ages.

I layered the stamped image on patterned paper (3 layers) and added additional shading with pro-markers.  I went for a pastel/shabby vintage look, with distressed edges, vintage feel papers and sanding on the embossed panels.
I used lots of pearls, glitter, stickles and ribbon flowers and an organza bow.  I used a MS punch for the lace panels and mat.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

The Sugar Bowl - Lilians Sketch and pearls
Crafty Cardmakers - Glitter and Sparkle
Die Cut Dreams - Soft shades of Vintage
Bunny Zoes Craft - Vintage
Lexis Creations - Embossing
Simon Says Stamp and show - Layers - I layered the stamp 3 times
Papertake Weekly - Just the One - one pearl pin, one bow, one image
Simon Says Stamp - Pearls and lace
Cute Card Thursday - Material Girl - I used ribbon and fabric on the layered flowers and an organza bow.

Good luck to everyone in these challenges, and thanks for looking xxalisonxx
