Once Upon A Princess Castle

Here is the castle I made today using the Once Upon A Princess Cricut Cartridge. On my castle I also used the Jubilee Cricut Cartridge to cut a banner which I cut in half and wrapped around a cocktail stick to make a flag. All the castle components were cut at 7 inch and my castle was made completely out of A4 card stock of which I used 7 sheets (3 sheets of light pink, 3 sheets of dark pink and 1 sheet of brown). I also made a slight modification to my castle using design studio, with which I used the main front of the castle (the one with a drawbridge) and hid the contours so that all that was cut was the drawbridge itself. This enabled me to then emboss my drawbridge with a wood effect fiskars embossing plate and then I inked this with a lighter brown to bring the patternation out. From the base of the castle to the top of the tallest turret (with out flag) the castle measures just over 8 1/2 inches tall. Thanks for looking :)

Fabulous! I'm new to this Cricut cartridge. I found all the patterns except for the cone top. I can't seem to find the cone top to the turret. Can you tell me where it is in the binder? Thanks.
