Little Princess Card :)

Hello, my crafty friends! I pray you're all enjoying a beautiful week! :o)

I've switched back to kid mode to create a card for sweet 4-year-old Claire, March's recipient of the I Feel the Love Project. Just after Christmas she was diagnosed with bone cancer, so our mission this month is to bless her battling heart.

Claire's website is called The Warrior Princess Foundation and I spotted some princessy pictures there, so I chose to make her a princess card. :o)

Little Princess (as the tag says, but is a bit washed out in the picture unless you enlarge it):
A wee bit of a closer look at the princess and her carriage:

The sparkling princess is a cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables, titled Fairytale Princess in Yellow. I hid her face from the cut to use a Peachy Keen Princess face, which I drew on since I lack that stamp set. She's dressed in glittery Core Couture purple, adorned with rhinestones because she's sparkling with so much love for Claire. The adorable horse (which I am seriously enamored with) is a cut file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, titled Princess Horse and Carriage. She's equally sparkly in purple and silver. :o) For some definition I used my C1 Copic around the edges of the pearlescent white layers. She is the sweetest horsie cut file I've ever seen and I instantly had to buy it for Claire's card. :o)

Instead of using the carriage from that set, I used this one from the Silhouette Online Store. How beautifully it cut those tiny filigree accents! I used Kaisercraft Magic Happens paper for it, as I love the purples and blues and the pretty flourishes. I added a few rhinestones for decoration, including two heart-shaped gems for the wheels. (The wheels are actually from the other carriage.. I played it safe since I was cutting it smaller.)

The "Little Princess" tag is from that same paper stack, which I affixed with a bow of Sky Blue twine, purchased at My Craft Spot. I dotted the 'i' in princess with a rhinestone because princesses need as much sparkle as possible. ;) The butterfly paper is from DCWV, chosen for its whimsical nature. I wanted to send Claire a sky filled with fun butterflies. :o) The shimmering green grass is more Core Couture paper, which I embossed with the Swiss Dots folder for texture. The princess, horse, and tag are popped up with foam tape for dimension. As sweet Claire battles each day toward victory (yes, VICTORY!), I hope this little bit of magic brings a smile to her heart. :o)
