Happy Birthday Girl ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

   Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon day! Woohoo! Can you believe I have waited almost 2 months to share this! My favorite, ever, ever project for PPPR! This little sweetie is over at our county fair getting herself a winning ribbon! Yay! I knew immediately that this card had to go into the competition at our fair so when I gave this to my sister for her birthday, I said "now can I have that back?" LOL! Totally true story! 
   Ok...let's get to this card...

   As darling at this little girl was, I wanted to give her a different hair do. Something a bit more ethnic feeling. Easy to do with the extra files the shop has! You'll see the example below with the photos of the cutting files I used. 

   Oh my! The shine! This card is so pretty! No matter what I tried, I couldn't get the sparkle to really shine for the photos. But the shirt, hair bow and yellow on the cake are covered in Wink of Stella. Not to mention the bling-ed out background! 

   The starburst cutting files are some of my favs in the shop. How I only came up with this idea now, I have no idea. It took some serious time but I did the background in steps. The darker shade was shaped with a star background pattern and dusted with Perfect Pearls. The lighter shade was stamped and dusted but with a different stamp and color of Perfect Pearls. Then over all that, I used a balloon stencil with Versamark. It was my first time using an embossing powder that once heated turns sticky. That was the perfect base for all that glitter! This background is easily my favorite background I've ever created! 

   Okay, now let me share the files I used!

I did that with a card I gave to one of my kids... I wanted to see if I could get it published in the Cricut Magazine.... and it did!!! So I had to ask for it back... cuz they wanted it!! Eventually he got his card back too! LOL But the background looks so cool on your card and you can see some of the glitter showing up on her shirt.... Have a Creative Day! :)
