Princess Tilda

Princess Tilda, enjoying a night on the town to celebrate a friends Birthday.
Her Tiara is so nice and matches her nice pink dress.

Historical note:
A tiara is a form of crown.
Traditionally, the word "tiara" refers to a high crown, often with the shape of a cylinder narrowed at its top, made of fabric or leather, and richly ornamented. It was used by the kings and emperors of some ancient peoples in Anatolia and Mesopotamia, notably the Hittites. The Assyrians used to include a pair of bull horns as a decoration and symbol of authority and a circle of short feathers surrounding the tiara's top. The Persian tiara was more similar to a truncated cone, without the horns and feathers but more jewels, and a conic-shaped tip at its top.

I do believe Tilda's Tiara is way more pretty and very elegant in comparison to those worn by Kings and Emperors of the past.

This is a fun image of Tilda and you can do so much with the theme for her.
I used lace, pearls, flowers and ribbon from my stash.
Bg papers, and cs from SU. Leaf punch from MS.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Many thanks for coming by and visiting my blog.
I wish you all a fun day stamping and designing.

Many thanks for your prayers and kind thoughts, I go see the cancer surgeon this next Monday.
They will then schedule my colon surgery. My faith is strong and I am looking fwd to being cancer free.

Sending big hugs to all
Blessings, Doreen
