Die Cut Dreams Challenge #89 Princess Birthday

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to the next fortnights chalenge at Die Cut Dreams. But I must just say thank you to everyone who joined us in our Wedding challenge - some super entries - check out the blog for the winner and top 3.

Our challenge this fortnight is


for a very special Princess - Susie Sugar (owner of Die Cut Dreams) had a birthday on Saturday - hope it was a good one hun.

Here is my card..........

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm looks a bit blurred now - can't change it as Susie has the card now!!! Try a closeup................

............doesn't seem much better. Oh well the details - my new purchase Tilda with Hawaii flower and an old one Butterfly Background all coloured with Aquamarkers and distress inks. I have used one os Susies die cuts to mount the scene stamp onto. The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley sentiment set - Dreamy Days and coloured with distress ink. The background card is by Core'dinations - Whitewash. It has been embossed by a Victoria and Albert collection folder called Floral.
I finished the card off with some pink pearls in the corners.
