Pretty, Pretty Princess H2H Challenge

This week at H2H the challenge is to create a girly girl item.  Since one of my Scrap Diva friends is expecting a little girl in Dec., I thought of her (all boys in my house!).  I will use this as a gift topper for her and she can use it as an ornament. 

The recipe is quite simple: 
1.  CTMH Dimensional Elements Ornament

2.  CTMH Cherry O Opaques
3.  Versamark ink and CTMH silver embossing powder
4.  CTMH organdy ribbon
5.  Micro beads, pearl pins and silver pearls from my stash
6.  CTMH Liquid Glass
7.  CTMH White Daisy cardstock and Jingle pink paper
8.  Hollyhock ink
9.  Small CTMH Chocolate number stamps

Directions:  Press decorative top of ornament and just the "cap" portion of the bottom of the ornament  into Versamark pad.  Sprinkle embossing powder over and shake off excess.  Heat with heat gun till melted and shiny.  Immediately sprinkle more powder over melted powder and heat again.  Repeat until happy with the look.  Adhere decorative top of ornament to the round bottom.  Cut stem off Cherry O Opaque flower and adhere to center of ornament.   Cut stem off Cherry O small flower Opaque and pull out center pearl.  Adhere to ornament top and poke hole in center. Put drops of Liquid Glass in the outer decorative holes and center of ornament.  Sprinkle micro beads over all and press in to adhere then shake off excess.  Decorate outer edges with pearls as desired. Attach ribbon and pins.  Create year tag with inks, paper and stamps.  Fit for a Princess Baby!
