TBS DT: Princess Tilda Sparkles!

Hello dear readers! It's another great week with The Beary Scrap Design Team! This week we want you to put your shades on 'cause we're full of Sparkle and Bling!

I've kept things simple this week and used the current Midnight Madness sketch as inspiration.  I do love a good MM challenge, and can't wait to see the one we're sponsoring August 10 - 16 !!

This card started out with a peacock feather in the upper right corner but the more I looked at it the more I thought it was looking back at me. *grin* It was unsettling!


Isn't Princess Tilda just the sweetest? She's wearing a costume full of Stickles, from the Platinum on her tiara to the  Frosted Lace gloves and skirt. Her dress is enhanced with clear Sakura Gelly Roll pen and the buttons on her sweet little shoes are Star Dust Stickles.

The card's outside layer is edged with Stickles Icicle -a larger reflective surface that leans toward golds- and the inside layer closer to Tilda is edged with Diamond. The particles are smaller than Icicle but also reflect golds as well as the colors around it. Star Dust is randomly dotted on Tilda's background.

Challenges

Card Recipe 
  • Stamp: Magnolia's Princess Tilda
  • Paper: Bo Bunny Peacock Lane - Parade, Stripe and Flowers (reverse side); Neenah for stamped Tilda

Susan

Susan this is just delightful. How sweet and precious that image is...and did you make your rose. I have made some recently and they are so fun and each one is so unique.
