Princess Katie!

Lisa set this challenge over on the Just Bex forum

Anyway...please use your imagination and creativity for this next challenge. I was like you to make a card with 1 or more blooms, BUT you are not allowed to use primas, silk flowers, ready made chip boards, punches or dies....get the just of this challenge? And just sticking flowery parper or card stock down is also not allowed. It needs to be something that we can see you've created.
I just love this photo and have wanted to 'scrap' it for ages but wasn't sure how to show it off. Katie's friend took the photo last year on her mobile phone and her dad has always called her his princess. I bought the spotty paper yesterday from Pink Petticoat and knew I had to use it with the photo and this is what I came up with.

The journalling is on a pull out tag behind the photo.
Materials used are Papermania card, Playboy ribbon was a freebie with the Playboy bedding she got for Christmas, flower was embossed onto silver mirri card on the Majestic keepsake board and cut out by hand, the metal 'Princess' word was a gift from my Secret Santa on Crafts by Carolyn for Christmas 2006!! (I have been waiting for a 'special' photo so I could use it!) and the large brad was in a kit from Scrummy Stash Cafe Die cuts are Quickutz and Ellison Thin Cuts and the flat back gems are from my craft box.
Off to do another quick LO for a different challenge then it's a quick burst of housework before I settle in my craft room for the rest of the day :))
