Jem's Victoria

This is a commissioned card for a "very grown up" 8 year old who loves pink. I love this image from Jem's Designs and have used her before for a young girl's birthday so I thought she would be perfect. Her name is Victoria and she's from The Age of Steampunk CD.

Here is a surprise for you all; it's an A5 easel card, not my usual 8"x8"! I used Spellbinder die Grand Labels Eleven to cut all the bases and layers. The cards used are pink Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable  and black Kanban. The backing paper is from the CD.
I cut, freehand, two figure 8s and mounted the pink one on the black, slightly off-setting it to create a shadow effect. I then tied a silver charm to it before attaching to the card.

I decoupaged and glittered Victoria and gave her pride of place in the centre. I then prettied the card up with a lace bow and button, a Memory Box scroll and some fabric flowers topped with pearls. I added three more pearls to the other side for balance.
An MCS printed sentiment creates the stand and more scrolls for decoration finish the card. It's worthy of a birthday princess, I think.
The previous post showing Victoria is "A Different Steampunk" in case anyone wants to compare the two very different cards.
