Princess Bell of the ball!!

 Hi and welcome to my post
As i was going from blog to blog i came across a challenge from
September something challenge
 it was brought to my attention that this is going to be its last challenge they have decided not to do anymore challenges so i thought the image below was an appropriate image to use,  i hadn't intended to enter this so quickly as i like to keep a challenge going for at least 1week before entering another but couldn't resist this one so here is my card
The image is what i won from


Using a 6x6 white Scalloped card background swiss dots embossed folder  Red Crackle iced paper layered with 3d sticky pad, layered again onto plain white card, the image coloured With promarkers glitter around the image and skirt pink ribbon and dark pink card candy
Little Princess stamp lotv
and to finish off with a couple of pink gems
 Spellbinders circle and Nellies corners i took out the middle and used the ends to give this panel on the right hand side
Thank you for looking
Sandra H xx
