Now, for my project. Susan asked for this:
I wish I had the time to make such a cake, but alas, given the nature of blog hops and my distance from Susan, I was unable to do so! ;-) But, I did create this card for her!
The patterned card stock is Karen Neuburger Chesapeake Collection in Dainty Floral. It's a few years old, but I thought the purple flowers were perfect! The sentiment and scroll stamp are from Waltzingmouse Say it With Style. I used Labels 10 from Nestabilities for the tag, and adhered the bling with my I-Rock. I used purple embossing powder over the purple ink for the scroll to give it some pop. The real pop however comes when you open the card!!
I borrowed Aurora from my 3 year old to take the picture!! The castle is from Once Upon a Princess. The paper for the castle is Core'dinations Whitewash Collection. For the shadow image on the back of the card I flipped the image before cutting it, so it was on the reverse side of the paper. I did the same thing when I cut the peaks on the castle towers. All the edges are inked with Dusty Concord distress ink. The windows on the castle are filled with glossy accents. Here is a close up of the castle:
