Party Princess

I had a lovely afternoon yesterday...crafting away...and this is one of the cards I made. I followed the sketch from the Sugar Bowl Challenge, and went with their optional extra of 'Girly & Feminine'. I used 'Party Princess', watercolouring her to match the yummy BasicGrey 'Bittersweet' papers. I used my 'Perfect Paisley' Cuttlebug folder to emboss the pink strip across the centre, then sanded the raised areas. I distressed the edges with inks, used an EK Sucess punch for the scalloped edge, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

Since we're now allowed to combine our Sugar Bowl Challenge cards with others, I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
