Hi everyone! Today's OCC challenge is one we can all have fun with - embellishments! Diane has challenged us to use at least three embellishments on our creation.

My favourite embellishment is probably ribbon - it's rare I create without it. On this card I've also used Prima flowers - another hot favourite, Stickles, Glimmermist, Brads and Crystal Effects.
The Birthday Princess cutie has her dress paper pieced, the rest of the image is coloured with SU! Markers. I added Stickles to the crown then a layer of Crystal Effects over top and on the cake icing. The flowers were sprayed with Glimmermist and I added a Build-a-brad.

The banner, scalloped rectangle and jumbo scallops layer are all outlined simply with a Chocolate Chip marker - I just hold it on its side to get the even lines.

Head on over to Our Creative Corner to see the wonderful design team creations - I hope you'll embellish along with us!
