My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

Welcome to my project for the hop....
After hours of issues with blogger.... still having issues but at least I can add my photos now.

I made this card using Birthday Bash. I cut the actual card at 8, 7, 6, 5, and 4"
I then lined them up in the middle and then trimmed the sides so it would be even on both sides. After using all of my pretty paper.... I did not like the card with the sides the same. So I ended up matting it on the purple diamond paper and then on the pink and purple argyle paper. All of the papers are Best Creation, including the glitter paper. The collection is called Ballet Princess.
I also cut the phrase from Birthday Bash at 3" and the balloons at 3 1/2"

I used Paper Dolls Teen Scene for the girl and cut her at 4"

The presents at the bottom were actually stickers and I used Lavender, Thistle and Aqua stickles to pull all of the papers, glitters and colors together.
I also used Turquoise Gem Versa Magic ink and Pearlescent Purple Brilliance ink.

Here is the inside of the card and I intentionally put the paper like this on the inside. I thought it would make the inside pretty and pull the whole project together... Like I say pretty projects start with pretty papers.

I also used Jillibean Soup Pink and Purple Twine and I used Royal Twine from
The Scrapbooking Queen and used the Turquoise Gem Versa Magic ink to color the twine a little bit more to be a perfect match for my project.

The purple bling is from the dollar section at Target.

I also used a brad to secure the twine under the presents then I put adhesive on the back of layer one of the card to hold the twine in place. After it was all in place I added the next layer of paper. So each layer masked the layer before and then from inside to out every side and every edge was finished.

I used my Zutter Corner rounder to round all of my edges.

So here is my cute little card fit for any
Royal occasion in honor of today's sponsor and her Birthday!
