This card is a birthday card fit for a little princess. The image that I used is from Karen's Doodles and is called Princess Pony. I embossed the pink strip of paper that runs behind the image using a Fiskars texture plate (dots). This is my card for the very first challenge at Karen's Doodles United States Challenge Blog.

Sweet Stampin: Something for a Child

Stamp Something: Something Girly

One Stitch At A Time: Pink & Purple

Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Show/Express Joy/Joyfulness (Joy on the little girls face)
