Bonne Fête ma Belle Princesse - birthday card with Authentique & Basically Bare


This week the Authentique team is mixing in some Basically Bare products.  I love anything kind of embellishment I can customize, so this was right up my ally.

I started with the "Lively" collection, and made this card for my daughter's birthday.  (The sentiment translates to "Happy Birthday, my Beautiful Princess".   I love the way the Authentique paper distresses.


The dress is made from Basically Bare 'dress' embellishments in felt and canvas.  I sprayed them both with glimmer mist (the canvas is a darker shade), and then added some brown mist with a stencil.  Then I cut and folded back the canvas and adhered to the felt, and added some green trim.


Thanks for visiting!
