Happy Birthday Princess

UPDATE! I'm delighted to say I won 3rd prize in the Craftystash comp! Whoop whoop!
Debbie will be launching a new comp next week I'll let you know all about it ASAP!
Hi everyone, I hope you are all well!
 The first card I have to share with you today is my entry for the monthly competition over at 
The theme this month is spots & stripes.
You must use one of  Deborah Lauder's (site owner) downloads.
There are loads of downloads to choose from including templates for all sorts of different shaped cards with fancy folds!
There are also a great number of free downloads which you can use too!
As well as her own website, Debbie's downloads are also available @ Card making Downloads.
(You will need an account at one of the stores to enable you to download!)
If you fancy a go at winning one of the fab prizes on offer, you still just about have time to do it!

Very generous, I'm sure you'll agree!

For this card I used the Birthday Princess download! 
The colours are just perfect for a little girl I know who loves pink but is not all frilly pinky girly!

For the base card I used a sheet of A4 pink cardstock and cut to size.
The DP's I have used are included with the download I think there are 4 in total!
 (Makes it soo easy as you don't have to go searching for something to match up!)
Debbie has included lots of little detailed decoupage bits for the more experienced crafter but if you are a beginner you can use just the bigger sections!
I cut out the decoupage with my trusty scissors & layered up using pinflair glue.
I matted & layered the sections on to contrasting papers /card.

I added some black ribbon & a few gems strategically placed. I also added a couple of punched butterflies(made using my Martha Stewart punch)
I used the layered up sentiment as the stop!
Not sure if you can make it out but the little flowers are layered up too.

This was such a fun card to make! 
Thank you for looking & I hope you can find time to enter the comp!
There are some fab prizes on offer!
