Some Odd Girl - Birthday Card "You deserve the ROYAL Treatment"

Hi guys! Sorry for the delays in posting. I got crafty the other night, did something I rarely do, and since then, this card has been on my desk.... 
So, for this card, my first stop was the layer with misting. I got some sequin scrap, and sprayed bronze perfect pearls through it, giving it the bubble look. I set it aside to dry, and coloured up "Royal" from Some Odd Girl, with my spectrum Noir Markers. I then layered up some paper from Teresa Collins (this is the boys range!) and doodled around the edges, I added the perfect pearls piece, which I stamped with the sentiment, and added it. Royal has been attached with dimensional adhesive, and I added a trio of rhinestones.
Here's the close up

I've also finally got my markers into a home, that they have been needing! I had them in a box, and their original packaging, yet the box was falling apart and the original packaging was looking wrong... So, I ducked in to Typo yesterday, and grabbed some of their Milk Crates. I was originally only going to get one, as they are usually about $25, but they were on sale for $10 each, so I grabbed the matching pair they had! Look how great they look, filled with my markers!

Hi, Jess! Love your "behind the scenes" info on how you created your misted background...and I never would have guessed that you paired Royal with boyish paper! Thanks for joining our challenge this month at Some Odd Girl! :)
