Happy Birthday to A Little Princess!

Happy Friday and oh, I think there is a wedding happening today?  :)  I made this card for an adorable little girl who just turned 3 years old.  She invited my husband and I to her birthday party because she considers us her "buddies" (we are really good friends with her parents).  Her birthday party had a princess theme so I had to make her a card suited for a princess.  I thought it seemed appropriate to share this card today!  Are you watching the Royal Wedding today?

Materials Used:
  • Castle on a hill is from the Provencial Princess SVG set by Lettering Delights (cut with Cricut using Sure Cuts A Lot).  Popped up using Therm-O-Web 3D foam squares. Textured using Swiss Dots embossing template and my Sizzix Texture Boutique.
  • Sentiment by TLC Creations
  • 3 Punches - Star and heart shapes
  • Gem Stickers by Creative Charms
  • Glitter and Patterned Cardstock by DCWV, Solid Paper by Recollections

I have entered this project in the following challenges and link-ups:

Patches of Pink Link-up Party
