Happy Birthday, Princess

We want to thank all of you who continue to participate in  My Grafico Challenges. Each of our challenges last for two weeks. The current challenge: Outdoor Fun runs until September 23, 2001. So, you still have time to participate. Once you complete your project, you can submit it by clicking HERE.
This week, the design team was given the following digital stamps to use in creating a project.

This week was challenging for me. I do not have a machine that will cut svg files nor am I proficient to use a png file. So I only had to create with a jpeg file!! With the crowns and the bling, a princess theme  came to mind. I have a granddaughter who loves bling so I decided to create a birthday crown for her for her next birthday. However, she already saw the finished project and doesn't want to wait until January. (I really don't blame her 4 months is a longgggg time when you are 6!!)

I drew a crown shape, then cut it out of a shiny purple cardstock. I printed the sentiment on cardstock then cut out each word and backed it with black cardstock. I followed the same procedure with the little girl.I made my own rose from ribbon and also designed the stick pins. Finally, I added the trim and the jewels.

Materials Used:
CS ,DP, ribbon, sequins, jewels: Michael's
Flower and stick pins: made my Barbara!!

I hope that I have inspired you  to create something this week! If you would like a few of my original stickpins, just let me know and maybe we can work out a trade. Thanks for visiting. Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog.
