London's Birthday

Hi everyone,
Hope all is well with you and yours.  I want to welcome my newest followers - thank you so much for coming along on my crafting journey. 

Today's card is for our youngest granddaughter London.  I've used Krista Smith's digital called Rapunzel a Princess by Saturated Canary.   This was London's choice - she was all over the hair - pleading...please can I have her on my card.  I do love her enthusiasm and hope to surprise her this weekend.    The Ornate Floral Frame digi stamp is from Make It Craft. Greeting was printed in Word.    The frame is a SB Romantic Rectangles die, MS lattice punch was used - going for a ladder type look here?   DP is the remainer of the Pion 12x12 sheet, with SU Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom (so sad they discontinued that colour).

I fussy cut Rapunzel and used my Copic 100 marker to go around the edges, trying to remove any white.  Both the frame and image were popped up on dimensionals.  Little girls must have sparkle, so here we have it on the ribbon, a Dollar Store find.   Tim Holtz distressed ink "Tattered Rose" was used on the edges of the papers. NO roses or bows - I tried honestly, but felt it was just too busy with them and they would hide that gorgeous frame (imho).

 Copics:   Skin colours:  E11, E01, E000, R20
Hair:  E57, 59, 55, E49
