Pretty Princess Birthday card

Hello everybody!

Today I would like to share another kids card that I made this week. This one is for a little girl. I knew which stamp set I wanted to use, but I wasn't sure which colors to use. One of my customers asked me how I pick my colors and fussed over how great I am with color. I have to be totally honest... I've never been great with color. When I first started making cards, I often got very frustrated trying to come up with a color scheme. Then I discovered the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper! Often times, I will choose the stamp set first and then I would choose one of the Designer Series Paper's that would go nicely with the set I choose. It makes my life so much easier! You don't have to be great with color to make beautiful cards!

When I was done putting the main image, the ribbon & sentiment on this card, I kept looking at it and thinking that it needed something else. Then I thought about the rhinestones, but thought they'd look funny by themselves, so I decided to try putting them on the little flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. What do you think?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Pretty Princess
Paper: Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Whisper White & Lap Of Luxury DSP
Ink: Jet Black StazOn & Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Flower Punch (Itty Bitty Punch Pack), Basic Jewels (Rhinestones), Blushing Bride & Concord Crush In-Color Stitched Poly Ribbon, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing tool, Stampin' Dimensionals & Mini Glue Dots.

Thanks so much for coming by. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
