Rapunzel/Princess tower birthday card

 Hello folks.  It's been really fun hopping around in blogland and catching with you.  I have especially enjoyed looking at your 'year in review' posts where you share your favourites.  So much crafty talent out there.  I thought I'd share this card I made to showcase Joanna Sheen's 'Country House' stamp set.  I used one of the small stone work stamps on the tower. 
 I cut the tower itself on my Cricut.  All of the layers were cut in white and I coloured the shades of grey with alcohol markers.  I die cut the flowers (an old 'Little Claire's' die) from red cardstock and added Martha Stewart garnet glitter. The tiny leaves are punched using my Pinflair Multi-punch.
I plaited some yellow yarn and positioned it on the card using dimensional glue gel.  The sentiment was printed out on my Xyron Design runner and I hand cut the banner shape.  Then was then shaped and adhered with more dimensional glue gel.  I added the tiny red ribbon as a finishing touch.
Ciao for now!
