Everybody Wants To Be A Princess...Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful afternoon! We woke up to snow in Oregon this morning! The kiddos were excited not only because we have snow but they closed the schools, so no school for them today! And for me, I'm finally getting over this nasty cold I've feeling much better! And it's a good thing I'm feeling better too, because I've been wanting to get some crafting time in as I will need to be packing my craft room soon! We've been on the hunt for a new house, so once we find one, I will really busy with the move.

So anyways...onto the card I created. I recently ordered some stamps from Kraftin Kimmie and I just couldn't wait to use this gorgeous fairy princess stamp! And now that I have me some yummy stamps from Kraftin Kimmie I can play along in their challenges! For this weeks challenge they gave us a wonderful sketch to work with...

I sparkled her wings with Stickles and I broke out my Bazzil Basics swirl stencil to place some rhinestones around the image! I think I went a little crazy with all the bling as I also added some gorgeous brads from Lush along with some pearls!

And I just had to play with my new swirly tag dies from Spellbinders to frame the sentiment!

And the inside is blinged as well...

PAPERS: Glittery purple and light blue textured cardstock from "DCWV". Designer paper is from "Recollections". Pink and plain white cardstock for the bases.
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image and sentiment is handstamped and is from "Kraftin Kimmie Stamps". The sentiment was embossed with iridescent sparkle.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Tuxedo Black ink from "Memento" for the image and Black pigment ink from "ColorBox" for the sentiment.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Clear rhinestones, Clear acrylic dew drops, white pearls brads from "Lush", Lilac Mullberry paper rose from "Recollections", pink paper flower from "Prima" and a white paper doilie.
TOOLS: Sewing machine and "Spellbinders" with circles, open scalloped lace circles dies, fancy swirl tag dies and rose embossing plate.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with lavender color thread. Crystal "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image for even more sparkle! The sentiment was embossed with shimmery iridescent powder. The image and sentiment were 3D foam mounted.
