Hello and welcome to the All girls Are Princesses Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Nataliya's blog.  If you are just joining the hop and wish to start from the beginning, please hop on over to Gill's blog.

We have TWO sponsors for this hop.  The first sponsor is CDee Designs.  The winner will be awarded 3 digi images!

Our second sponsor is Crafty Card Gallery.  The winner will receive one free digital edition of Creations by Crafty Card Gallery, a card making magazine with techniques and opportunities to learn new things in addition to card images.   

Details on how to become eligible for one of the prizes are on Gill's blog.

Now, on to my project :

I love The Saturated Canary's images and have acquired a small collection.  I have so many favorites, and so many of them are fit for a princess-themed card.  It was difficult to choose one.  I finally settled on Rose Red because she reminded me of a sweet, innocent princess out in the woods, enjoying nature.  I love her full skirt.  My oldest "princess", who is now 16, still has a great love for full poufy skirts that go SWISH! when she spins around.  When I saw Rose Red's outfit, I immediately thought of my daughter, and that confirmed that Rose Red was the perfect choice!

I colored Rose Red with Copics.  Since we are going with a princess theme, I just had to go with PINK!  I added sparkle to her dress with pink Stickles.  After all, a princess has got to have some sparkle, right?  Here are some close ups of the details.

I also added tulle, sheer ribbon, a rhinestone gem, and flowers.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my project.  Please hop on over to Anita's blog next.
