Pretty as a princess


I think I've mentioned my fondness for the Gorjuss girls once or twice before... I love them all, but this little Miss Attitude is one of my very favorites. I thought she went perfectly with the sentiment from TAC's "Yield To The Princess" set.
The DP is from Basic Gray's "Sultry" set. My addiction to that paper is also well documented Smiley from millan.net .......

I finished it off with a butterfly from my MS punch and a tiny bit o' bling. I found these little sparklies at Michaels and I believe they were intended to decorate hair accessories but repurpose very nicely wherever you want to add a wee sparkle!

Hi Kay! Oh my goodness is she ever darling!!! That is an attitude and I know a few she reminds me of! LOL! LOVE the BG too!!!

Thanks for such sweet comments and I too am sorry I don't get around more often... I make it at least once a week but not every day. You asked about the sponging on my MMSC card. I actually did not mask it this time. I intended to leave a lighter area right around the image but as I got going the white cs was too stark so I just went all the way up to it. I use make up sponges. I love the way they work much better than others. I use the straight edge to create the sanded looking lines etc and the thin edge of a wedge is very easy to manipulate right up against an image without coloring onto it. So that's what I did. If I was using sponge daubers I would have to mask! Hope that helps!

She is adorbale - in a defiant sort of way :) Reminds me of my daughter when she was little. Great card!
