Birthday Queen



Birthday Queen is one of the new stamp sets released by Sparkle N Sprinkle this month.  This is a sweet stamp set perfect for all the princesses in your life.

I used a digi version for both the image and the sentiment.  The image was fussy cut out and Green Iris, Mystical Mauve, and Ocean glitters were added to her outfit.

The sentiment was die cut using a Tim Holtz Labels die and then Distress Ink was applied to the top using the direct to paper technique.  Clear embossing powder was then added for more shine.

Both of the background layers, as well as the belly strip, were dry embossed using an embossing folder set (Antique Elegance) that came in one of the Cardmaking and Papercrafting magazines.  Sequins are the finishing touch for this Princess's birthday card.

We all know a queen who would be the perfect recipient for a card like this I think! Love your colors (my fav's) and the sparkle!

Marvelous embossing, Anne. What a beautiful design. I think I have that folder (or one very similar to it) and it's languishing in a box. I really need to dig it out. :-D Love the sparkle and the coloring.
