Personalised Princess/Fairytale card

Hi folks! My little ones are going to a Prince & Princess party today and I thought I'd make the birthday girl a card using Princess Charlotte (Whiff of Joy). I followed this weeks sketch oer on the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog. Stamp with Fun has a theme of a 'Card with a Scene'. The Craft Garden would like to see projects with 'Sparkle' . My Time to Craft has a theme of 'Scallops' and the Creative Card Crew would like us to use 'Ribbons & Gems'. There is a new Challenge on the block, Crafty Ann's Challenge and the very first Challenge is 'Celebrations'. I hope it's ok to enter this personalised Birthday card :D
The papers I have used are from the 'Once Upon a Time' stack by Die Cuts with a View. I'm so proud of myself cutting into these pages as I have only been able to stroke them for a long time. I used my Nestabilities to create the Square, Scalloped Square and label frame. The butterflies are punched using a Martha Stewart punch, I was surprised how well this little punch coped with the gold foil board. I cut the letters using the Go-Kreate 'Lingfield' alphabet and attached the ribbon bow with Pinflair glue gel. I stamped and embossed the Princess and coloured her with Copic Markers. I added glitter and gems for that final finishing detail.
Only one more sleep and I'll be heading to the NEC (really excited!!) Looking forward to meeting up with my fellow Sheenies and hopefully bump into lots of my blogging friends.... well not literally but you know what I mean.
Ciao for now!

Now there's one little girl who will be thrilled by her birthday card. I'll bet she keeps it in her 'treasure' box.
Love your style Sandra and your eye for detail.

I think any card that is personalised is really special - especially for the recipient. I'm sure the little girl in question will be thrilled with this - so much work and detail has gone into it. It's lovely. Thank you for joining in Crafty Ann's challenge.
