Happy birthday Princess

I made this birthday card for my niece, its meant as a tongue in cheek joke and it wouldn't surprise me if it ends up in the bin. I should explain further my niece I managed to upset on face book a while ago by suggesting that instead of her boyfriend who she lives with taking her out after he finished work she ought to cook him a meal as the meal she was suggesting wasn't that hard and then she could do the washing up. She took the huff after a tit for tat conversation that other family members were reading and thought was funny by telling me I didn't know her at all and I should stop being childish before she un-friended me, which made everyone laugh as it was a very childish response, she later told her Dad I'd been picking on her. Hence the card. The image is from LOTV and coloured with promarkers.
The sentiment is hand written with sakura gel pen and is meant to be sarcastic, I had seen this image used with a sentiment I loved 'you can't ground me I'm a princess', I couldn't find this anywhere and considering my niece is in her 20's I didn't think it appropriate.


I added a gem to the tiara and added some sparkle with sakura gel pens on the skirt of the image and the gift. I matted the image onto purple mirri-card and then onto a cream base card. Simple but as I expected it to go in the bin I didn't want to spend too much time on it. Needless to say I got a thank you via Facebook for my card but I'm still not my nieces friend on Facebook but I can live with that lol.
