French Manor BLOG HOP!
This is a layout for my daughter's birthday.  She will be turning 13.  Here's the "recipe" for my LO.

Cartridges used:
French Manor
Gypsy Font
Ashleyn's Alphabet
Cardstock colors:
Black, White,  Brown, Patterned cardstock border is from my cardstock stash

Bazill ink Juneberry
White ink
Silver metallic ink
EP 101 embossing powder Vivid Violet
Zig 2 way glue
Silver foil
Clear iridescent glitter embossing powder
Inkssentials glossy accents
Letters for Title
Cut letters at 3 inches from white cardstock.  I used my Gypsy to weld the letters together.  I then covered the letters in with the Juneberry ink then used 2 coats of Vivid Violet embossing powder.  Once the embossed letters cooled I coated them the glossy accents.
I cut the crown at 2.5 inches from white cardstock.  I used Zig 2 way glue to apply the silver foil.  I cut the accent pieces at 2.5 inches from white cardstock.  I used the white and silver ink and the clear embossing powder to add dimension to the crown pieces.  I attached the accent peice to crown base then outlined the entire crown with the glossy accents
I cut the chair at 4.5 inches from brown cardstock.  I used adhesive to attached purple flock to create a cushion for the chair.  I then coated all other parts of the chair with the glossy accents. 

I cut the border at 1 inch from the frame on the second row using the border and the shift key.  The patterned cardstock is from cardstock stash.

I attached the title, chair, crown and border to the black scrapbook pages.  I will add pictures in a couple of weeks when my daughter turns 13.
