Princess Saskia

Hi Everyone.
I hope that you have had a lovely day, even if it is Monday and you are back to work :)
As promised here is the card that I made for my Granddaughter Saskia's 3rd birthday.
She is definitely a girly girl, although there are times when she can be quite a tomboy. It wasn't hard to pick what I was going to do for her card, unlike her brother who was much harder, but more of that card later.
Anyway, as you can see it is quite pink. This was the colour that Sas chose when I asked her what colour she would like me to make her card. Isn't it funny how most little girls seem to start out with pink as their favourite colour lol.
The stamp is Princess Tilda and is available from Sir Stampalot. I hand stitched some tiny seed beads to her tiara. I couldn't thread the bead needle so its just as well that beading thread  is quite stiff.
The flowers are made using one of the Nellie Snellan flower punches available from The Art of Craft.
I added some tiny pre-made flowers from my stash. The swirls are made from the left over pieces from the border punch. You see we never waste anything do we.
I have stamped the letters on to white shrink plastic with Stazon ink and then cut each one out individually before they are shrunk. This really is one of my favourite stamp sets at the moment. It is a clear stamp set and I think it might be by Penny Black all though I am not 100% sure. It is perfect for Kids cards though.
I have decided to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge which is Summer Days, I think it fits quite nicely.
Oh by the way it is an Easel card, in case you hadn't guessed lol. I would also like to enter it in to the challenge over at Project Tuesday where the challenge is Easel cards.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you like the card.
Love and hugs
