Princess and a Swing

Greetings to you on this fine Sunday! 

(Imaginisce and Twinery hoppers, please click here.)

I actually have a 'girly' creation today to share with you.  This is created with the beautiful English Riviera card base and the Patchwork Pals stamp set "Bonnie - Party Time" from Kanban Crafts. 

I used scraps from my last card mini album project to piece together her outfit.  Once that was done I searched my desk for my other Kanban scraps and this little creation was complete:

I used one of the Cavendish Die Cut frames and cut it to create her "swing"  I fit behind that die another black oval that had a tiara in it to piece my little "princess".  It is adhered with eyelets so I could string the "rope" though.  I've added an acrylic heart at the top along with a couple of Epiphany Crafts floral buttons 20 using coordinating Kanban papers.  One extra bling is added to her tiara for some added sparkle.

For the frills here I've used Cheery Lynn Designs dies:  Exotic Butterflies Small, Mega Fanciful Flourish and Olive Branches for the leaves. I cut apart the mega flourish to piece it in around the swing.  

This project is being entered into the Cheery Lynn Designs Happy Birthday Challenge 24.

I had so much fun creating this card.  For 2012 I resolved to use my stamps and Copics more often.  To be honest, it's just a lot of fun to piece these together!!!  Mixing across the lines for this was also a great way to get an interesting collaboration too.

Ingredients Used:
Swing Die Cut:  Cavendish Portraits - PCT9758, Kanban Crafts 
Stamp:  Patchwork Pals; Bonnie - Party Time PPAS003, Kanban Crafts
Sentiment:  English Riviera, Kanban Crafts
Miscellaneous:  Foam Squares, Bird, Flower, Princess Oval Die Cut, Kanban Crafts
Green and Cream Cardstock:  Bazzill

Thanks so much for stopping on over!  Have a super scrappity day!
