Let me eat cake!

I had a birthday sneak up on me but fortunately I had coloured up this gorgeous image, Betty Antoinette, from Simply B Stamps when she first came out so all I had to do was pop her on a card.

My card follows the current sketch at Outlawz Challenge, I just resized it to fit my standard 6x6 card size.  The oval elements worked perfectly as I had already cut Betty Antoinette out using an oval Nestie.  I wanted purple gems for the smaller ovals but didn’t have any in my stash, I did find these CTMH metal embellies that have a motif similar to the French royal emblem of a fleur-de-lis and they were in blue to match Betty Antoinette’s hair so on they went.

With such a feminine image as Betty Antoinette and the sparkle and gold on my card it is definitely girlie so I’m entering it in the current challenge at Natalie and Amy’s Challenge.  I’ve also used something old, the CTMH embellies that have been in my stash for over six months, and something new, the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starbust, filled and spritzed for the very first time.  And with my Nestie I’ve got a die cut so I’m also linking my card at Die Cuttin’ Diva’s current challenge.
