Party Princess

I have another red, white & blue card today...I've used 'Party Princess' (by Sugar Nellie)...she's prefect for all those 'Jubilee' challenges with her crown...and her little bear has a crown too! The papers are from the 'Boxer' pad by BasicGrey...I distressed the edges with 'Picket Fence' Distress Stain, and then my distressing tool, before adding faux stitching using mmy CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp was a freebie with the latest DoCrafts mag...it's rather large, but I just had to use it because of the crowns! I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch along the edge of the border, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the sparkly gem brads are from Craft Obsessions.
