Pretty in Pink

This card is for a swap I'm about to send off.. a Disney princess ... by my reckoning, I thought she was Cinderella - duh .... Thank you Tanisha for advising me it was Sleeping Beauty! I forgot all about Sleeping Beauty!  She is a semi-transparent sticker - I've not seen many like it.  So to preserve her opaqueness, I left the sticker white back attached, in the arm and from the waist up - otherwise you'd see the card behind.  Ick.  From the waist down, I have attached pieces of rainbow coloured lace (the lace reverse is showing through). Leaving some lace poking at the bottom of gown, I've added some glitter, and to create a crown, I've added a wee piece of a transparent glitter border sticker, which seemed the right shape for a tiara.

The pattern on the pink mount is pin pricked, and I've stitched in beads around her. 

I adhered her down flat, except for the bottom of the gown, so it does have some depth.... the scan doesn't show it though.

Happy days everyone!

Pauline, this card is adorable, she is Sleeping Beauty though, but that's okay, after awhile they do start to look alike, lol. I love the stiching holes you made, very cute, it gives it a fantasy feel I think.
