Princess Graduate

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post! Yowza, life has been a bit chaotic. I have been spending time crafting, just not able to get any finished cards ready to post. Thankfully another AWESOME challenge at One Stop Crafts Challenge kicked me into gear. This week Shelly challenged us to use buttons and bows on our cards. The challenge runs until midnight on Friday so you have lots of time to join in.

One Stop Craft Challenge #133 ~ Buttons and Bows
Copic Creations Challenge #50 ~ Yellows I’m not a big fan of yellow (clashes with my skin tone) so I focused on trying out my hand at blonde/yellow hair. Most of my images end up brunette or auburn as I have yet to really find the perfect ‘blonde’ in my Copics.
Anything Goes: Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #24; Creative Card Crew Challenge; By the Cute and Girly Challenge; 2 Sisters Challenge #41
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge #35 ~ 2 or More Stamps I used the main girl image and pulled a graduation hat off another digi to create her graduation cap.
Little Red Wagon Challenge #82 ~ Use a Number
I used a numbered DP on the base of my card.
Stamping Vacation You Name the Challenge ~ Buttons
Daring Cardmakers Challenge ~ Passion for Fashion
What’s more fashionable than a lovely ball gown?
365 Cards Day 84 ~ Tuesday Prompt: Hat
I used a graduation hat instead of a crown on my princess.
Real Life Inspiration
One of my best friend's youngest daughter graduated from Kindergarten last week. She's such a special little girl in my life, I knew I had to create a princess card for her.
 My Creation
I created a diploma out of buttons and addd a gold bow.
I added a graduation cap to this sweet princess from Sassy Studios.
