Happy Birthday, Princess

Last weekend, we celebrated my niece's birthday.  I bought her a variety of Disney princess and Frozen items.  So naturally, I had to make her a special princess card to go along with her gift.  A while back, I bought a sequin-blend from SpiegelMom Scraps called Ella's Castle featuring mini silver stars, mini royal blue sequins, large white sequins, and silver castles.  The mini stars and sequins were perfect for the shaker balloon!

Wanting the princess to look like Anna from Frozen, I mixed and matched cuts from the Paper Doll Dress-Up Cricut cartridge and used my micro-tip scissors to modify some of the layers by hand.  I cut the princess dress 4 times -- once in each color and carefully trimmed the pieces to "color block" the dress to match Anna's.

Although hard to tell in the picture, I used the clear glossy side of the Fundamentals cardstock for the glacier background to add dimension to the card without taking away from the Cricut cuts.
