Girl Power - Guest Designer!

Hey everyone! I am the guest designer today over at Our Creative Corner.
The challenge this week is Girl Power and we are to include a hand made paper flower, ribbon and some bling. I pulled out the Once Upon a Princess cart and came up with this card. It is a BIG card, 5x7. I love the sentiment because it is fitting for a Birthday card, Graduation card, or any special moment in any girls life. 
The hard part for me was to come up with a creative way to make a handmade flower other than just cutting it with my Cricut. So I found this great video and ended up making about 6 of them. Super Simple. Like in the video, I added stickles around the edges of the flower for more sparkle.
Hope you hop over to Our Creative Corner and join in on the challenge this week. I would love to see what type of flowers and bling you use. 

Here's how I did it....
All paper is scraps from my stash
Girl/layers cut at 5" from Once Upon a Princess, p.26 & 37
Divine swirls cuttle bug folder for hair texture
face stamped with Peachy Keen Happy Lashes Stamp set
Ribbon from my stash
Brads and bling with my I-rock for belt and necklace
Sentiment from My creative time Polka Dot Surprise stamp set
Chalk and doodles with my gel pen

Barb, I love it! And the tip of adding stickles around the edges of the flower is super creative! TFS. And your girl is sooo hip! I'm glad you got to play along with us! Fabulous card! (and sometimes an A2 card just won't do). :)
