Winter Princess

Happy Winterday! So, yesterday I got my eagerly-awaited stamps for my term as a member of the My Cute Stamps Design Team! Oh, and I so love them! I couldn't resist making a card last night:

I created this wintery birthday card using the adorable little girl from the Tea Party set and the present from the Birthday Numbers set. Her dress is paper-pieced with some old Basic Grey Christmas Paper and to match her outfit I die-cut some tiny stars for her hair instead of coloring her flowers. This card looks so much better in real life, using perfect pearls spritzed with water and a brush to add a subtle shine to her dress, her hair and her eye-lids. Yes, she is wearing make-up :)

Keeping it short, time is precious these days! Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
