A Birthday Fit for A Princess

I had one of those days yesterday where nothing I made seemed to come out as I thought it would so I ended up coming up with a new challenge for the Design Team - we're going to play something similar to Chinese Whispers with stamps.  I picked one of the new stamp and die sets from Echo Park - Birthday Celebration and now I've made my card with it, I will be sending it on to another DT Member to see what they make with it, and then they will pass it on etc etc until everyone has had a go.   So you can expect to see this set a few times in the next few weeks!


For my version, I decided to just focus on the crown in the set and add in a few elements from some of the other goodies we've had in this week.  I stamped 5 crowns in shades of yellow for an ombre effect and cut them with the matching die.  They are layered over a panel embossed using the Quilted Star embossing folder also by Echo Park.

I die cut the new Happy Birthday Words from Papersmooches from grey card and gold foiled card (foils will be back in stock later today) and layered them up offset with each other.  All the crowns were screaming princess so I stamped the word onto white card using the ever useful Milo's ABCs from Lawn Fawn and tucked it into the word die.

As every princess needs a little bling I added a diamond from My Precious highlighting it with some extra shimmer using the Sparkle set both of which are new in from Winnie and Walter.   A little strip of yellow card from the Birthday Wishes Girl paper pad adds a little pop of colour.

Will it take a long time for the Altenew out of stock items to arrive?
weeks or months?

I can't give a time frame Holly, sorry - the time between me placing an order and companies actually shipping to me varies vastly with every order so if I give an eta it often frustrates more than helps. Sorry but importing is NOT easy!
