Fairytale girl

Getting this card finished has been quite the undertaking! I worked on my paper-pieced princess over a couple of days until the only thing left to add was her crown. I located the gold paper that I wanted to use, cut out the crown but then couldn't find the princess. I looked for days! Even my DH looked but she had seemingly disappeared. I had already made the card base (based on a challenge) and I needed to finish the card that day so I picked out another paper-pieced image I had done awhile ago and tried to make the image fit. Of course I ended up just hating the finished product!

Finally, I gave up and dismantled the card. Of course it was shortly after that I found my little princess (attached to the bottom of my paper cutter!!). Oh well. It gave me an excuse to start over with the card layout and I'm actually more pleased with this sketch. So, without further ado, here is my paper-pieced princess card and the challenges she is (finally) ready to enter.

  • Basic Grey patterned papers
  • Technique Tuesday stamps (princess & sentiment)
  • Stickles
  • Gold foil (for crown)
