Birthday for a Princess

Ack! My little girl turns 4 two weeks from Saturday! I had to crank out her invitations so I could get them in the mail!

I was drooling over some new Heidi Swapp pink bling in the shape of princess crowns (saw them in a magazine ad), BUT ... no time to drive around town looking and definitely no time to order and wait for shipment.

I had to go with the "use what you have" method. Not that I have any actual experience with that. Don't we make so that we can buy?

Gosh, let me see, what did I use here? (All Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.)

Stamps: A Little Love, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Shimmery White, Pretty In Pink, Basic Black
Ink: Black Staz-On
Other: Pretty In Pink marker, slit punch, Cuttlebug "Textile" embossing folder, and Heidi Swapp pink jewels

It's a hard card to photograph. In real life, the card just shimmers from that Shimmery White paper. I'll udpate if I can get a better photo. In the meantime, click on the image for a close-up.

Sparkly, yet sweet, just like my little girl :)
