a card fit for a princess

I'm sorry I haven't been around for a few days...with it being the last couple of weeks of the school's been crazy busy. I feel like I have needed to schedule time for breathing!! This last week was the worst of it I think...there is still alot going on but it should be more manageable now!'s hoping! Yesterday I had exactly 25 minutes...that I should have spent doing laundry or unloading the dishwasher...but instead I made a card. My friend's daughter is graduating from high school and I wanted to do something a little more than just $$ in the card. She is a super sweet and darling girl...she loves pink and bright colors! If you knew would know that this card screams Kylie!! I decided to get her these towels to take with her when she heads off to college...cuz she needs her own cute ones. Inside the card I also slipped in a Target gift cert. so she can get a few more things she might need for college life!! I realized when I got the towels home from the store that they matched some SU colors pretty lucky huh! So that was the inspiration for this card! I used this retired patterned paper from SU (can't remember the name) cuz it had all the right colors! I added lots of sparkle and bling to this card so it would match the "princess" getting it!
Have a fantastic rest of your weekend!!! Thanks for comin' by!
