A Princess for Embellish

Hi Peeps! Tuesday here and my PTI packge is sitting in customs. Will I have it by the end of the week?? That is the question :0)! (Still, it's nice to know that its really and truly on the way and actually on 'home turf' now!!) Woohoooo!

Embellish Magazine comes up with the most creative colour combinations don't you think? This time they came up with :

"Yellow and Cream, Peach and Green ...." here is the eye candy ... and the theme ...


I'm still making baby cards to donate (looks like this will be ongoing) so it really was a matter of conscience for me to participate don't you think?! (A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do... :0)


Hero Arts was selling this great crown image a while ago - and their baby stamps had this sentiment - "little princess" ... so I connected the dots ...


The flowers on the embossed crown are embroidered with silk ribbon - so are the little leaves. I coloured in the crown with a Versamark pen and added crystal glitter to the interior space.

The yellow card was cut with a blossom die. I cut out the same shape in vellum and embossed it to layer over the top for softness.

Some home dyed seam binding and a little heart button finished it all off!

Thanks to Embellish and their DT for another chance to play along! Beautiful things happening there!!

Thanks for popping in! We have sunshine and birds singing today. So beautiful!

I hope you have blessings today - in whatever form you find them!

:0)!!
