A Card Fit for a Princess

Hi there! Today, I have a very girly card to share with you. I was asked to make a card for a little girl who loves pink and princess stuff. I knew I was going to have a lot of fun with this one. I struggle with cards for boys, but girly is my thing!

This adorable digi image is "Cinderella" from Pixie Dust Studio. I printed her out on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored her with Copics. I cut out the image with Classic Oval Nestabilities and sponged around the edges with Memento Cataloupe. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the edge of her ball gown and her headband, and coated her bodice and the bottom of the dress with Shimmerz Angel Wings for a subtle, sparkly effect. I also added two pearls for her earrings.

All of the papers are from October Afternoon Ducks in a Row. I finished the card off with a white grosgrain bow and three white brads.

I usually just put a white piece of cardstock on the inside of my cards and leave them blank. However, I wanted to put something special on the inside of this one. I looked up "princess card sentiments" online, and I found this sweet sentiment - "Wishing you a birthday that makes all your sweet dreams come true - with magical moments, surprises and laughter, and smiles in your heart to keep ever after! Happy Birthday, Princess!"

I sure hope this little girl loves this card as much as I loved making it.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Sew Many Cards - anything goes
Penny's Challenges - anything goes
Raise the Bar Challenge - Color Me Happy (My favorite color is pink).
Hand Full of Stamps - use at least 2 different patterned papers

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a sparkly day! :)
