Birthday Princess Card

One of our Granddaughters turn 17 tomorrow.  She thinks she is Papa's princess (well aren't all granddaughters princesses :) so I thought I would make her a princess card.  I made this card following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday, I love this sketch.   I sure wish the pictures would should the colors better.

The card base is a very pale pink, and the chocolate color is pearlesence like paper.  The crown is cut from Gypsy Wandering cartridge at about 2 inches and the birthday princess is from Birthday Cakes.  I cut it twice and layered them.  The top layer I covered with Diamond Glaze, the paper it self is Cored'nations glitter card stock and the glitter shows through the glaze.  I added some bling to the band on the crown and also along the top.
The bow I made using the "tye a bow on a fork method" and left it with some extra loops, also added some bling to the center of the bow. 
The inside I printed the sentiment on vellum paper and then immediately sprinkled embossing powder on it when it came off the printer (seconds are crucial for this to work) and heat embossed it.  Added a couple strips down the side punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
Thanks for stopping and by and remember I love your comments or if have any questions just ask.
