Heart2Heart challenge

I have recently decided to commit to doing some challenges on an awesome blog called Heart2heart challenges.  Each week, a challenge is issued to create a card or project with certain requirements.  For example, last week was create a non-square or non-rectangular card.  This week, it is to create a "girly" card.  Here are my submissions:

It's hard to see in the picture, but there is Glitz glitter gel on the background paper, and Prisma glitter on the crown and wand.  Very sparkly!!  :-)

This one is a little more sophisticated.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stamp set!! 

I used my Martha Stewart Scoring Board to create the vertical lines, and sanded them down.  Then I paper pieced her skirt with Smokey Plum cardstock, and glammed it up a bit using the Mocha Opaques.  Best new product of the winter catalogue!!!!    Here is a closer picture of her skirt:
Isn't she cute??
