my little princess 5th Birthday card!!!

First I'd like to welcome my new followers to my blog!!! Thank you so much for your support, it means the world to me!!!

 I hope you've all had a lovely Easter!!!! In here we are back to normality now.... I've just dropped Alaia in nursery... and have a total of 2 and a half hours to myself! I'm still feeling a bit poorly and miserable... but trying to cheer myself up with a bit of blog writing and catching up on the beautiful cards everyone is making!!!

Today I want to show you the birthday card I made for my little princess Alaia's 5th Birthday! She a real princess, always dressing up and loves pink, so she loved this card!!!!

This beautiful image I used is a new digi by Mo Manning... A few weeks ago Mo showed a few videos on how she created this beauty and I just fall in love with her. I knew I needed to have it for Alaia's card.  It's called "Birthday Princess" and you can find her here.

As you can see, a very girlie and busy card!!! 

As you might know, I love layers and more layers... so I couldn't disappoint with this card.
I've used papers from different brands for the layers. They are from:  Dovecraft Princess Fairytale paper pack, Crate Paper Little Boo Peep Paper pack and K&Company paper pad.

I coloured the little princess with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

I used:
Promarkers: Raw Sienna, Tan, Satin, Blush, Almond, blossom, Buttercup, mustard, Antique Pink, Leaf Green

Flexmarkers: Watermelon, Tea Rose, Wild Orchid and Pink Pearl.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Tattered Rose around the edges of the image.

I created the sentiments on my computer.
I fussy cut the number 5. I really need to get myself some letters and numbers die cuts... but for the moment, this is what I have to work with!

To finish off the card I used:

Lace (I think I got this one in Spain???)
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Buttons from local shop.
Pearls from Hobbycraft.
two kinds of washi tape from local shop.
