This card was made for my daughters 13 year old friend. She loves pink and is a cheerleader. I am in love with Bella stamps for such personalized card creations. Painstakingly cut out the bella with craft scissors and craft knife. www.stampingbella.com are also super fast at international postage, infact they are THE fastest.
The cute flags and lettering, DP, ribbon are all from papertreyink. I used my score-pal to emboss around the flags, this made by difficult to see in the picture, but really made the flags pop in real life. www.papertreyink.com and papertrey. Papertrey even give a $10.00 international shipping discount...they really listen to their customers through their online forum. Another bonus!
The bling is amuse from www.ellenhuston.com I don't know if you can see, but there is hot pink bling on the hair ties. The cutest little color. Copic sketch markers & copic spica pens all from Ellen's as well, great advice, price and speedy service.
The star die cut is from a company that won't sell me a replacement for a missing letter in a $119.00 vintage die cut alphabet set. I use a lot of their products and love them but am so sad that they won't sell me the missing piece. They just replied "I don't know what to tell you, but we don't sell individual replacement pieces". I think is is a bit of a concern as even Stampin' Up! will replace occasional missing pieces for free! I have spent well over $1500US on "this companys" dies. Would it be nasty of me to not mention their name on all my work?

What a great card. I love the layered look of the star under the Bella. Great use of the pendents on top. SO cute!
btw...I am surprised about the bad customer service of the company you are talking about. I am sure that this situation has come up in the past...and it will happen again. Customer loyalty is what keeps them in business. Did they forget? What would it really cost them to break up one set to get a good word out there for themselves.

All I can say is....AMAZING!!!! This card is absolutely incredible!!! I love EVERYTHING! You put a great deal of heART into this one. SO creative!!!! You are one very talented lady:) I hope your daughter's friend (Bianka?) appreciates all your hard work.
Also, I hate that you received such a negative response from the diecut company. If they don't want to give you one stinkin' replacement letter, then why give them free publicity. Fair is fair.

Great card for your DD friend - perfect for a cheerleader! thanks for the link to my card - I appreciate it! Too bad about your missing letter - you'd think a company could accomodate something like that somehow...
