Scraps of Darkness *July Kit* ~ Pretty Princess

So when I saw this kit, Marrakesh Express from Scraps of Darkness, I imagined richness and royalty.  And the one in my household  that is treated with royalty, is Angel, my puppy.   So I made this DT page featuring Angel in her crown, and trust me she acts like it.  She is feisty and spoiled, full of spunk.  With the Darkest Side Challenge over at SOD  using the theme of Spice of Life, she is my spice and I will be entering this page to share.   The photo was taken on July 17, 2011.

I used a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches by Nanne Harry as my guide.  I didn't have a big enough circle, so I went in another direction with some of my layers and placement of things, to make up for the lack of bigness.

I am also entering this in the Dusty Attic Birthday Challenge #3, using a raw mini vine.

I wanted to use all my shiny embellishes full of richness for this page.
The big flourish is a rub on.  The raw DA vine is on the photo here.
