just magnolia mania

hello everyone!  ive made a card for the magnolia mania challenge the theme is Prince and Princess  so cute! :) and in the just magnolia challenge 166- Let’s make a birthday card!
and the tilda's town anything goes challenge

i really love the fairy tale tilda collection and i haven't really got to use them very much, so i was really excited about getting to color some of these princess stamps :).

here's what i came up with...

 i love the way this came out.  i used papers that i got from michelles in the "impulse" section they had a bunch of blue and white mini paper packs for 50 cents each, so i got all of them.  lol.  i also used a wooden frame from there that i painted blue and crackled.
 here's a close up of the bunting.  it's some lace that i made into triangles and added buttons, and silk ribbon in the eyelets.

i made this little crown out of some multi size pearls that i had, and added crystals to the points to make it more princess-y.

here's the other corner that i added i am roses to. and some pearl swirls.

here's a close up of tilda and i added some vellum behind the horse to soften the frame and make thee image stand out more from the frame. 

i hope you ladies like this card! thanks for stopping by! :)
