Marlene's Blog Candy Challenge

I made this card for Marlene's blog candy challenge found here! The challenge is to make a card utilizing the color green and also to use ribbon!! That is her favorite color and she loves using ribbon!! She made this challenge to give back to her visitors!!! If you seen her blog you would see why she has so many visitors!! It is lovely!!

Anyway the prize consists of stamps and a bunch of things but the thing I am most excited about are the Hanglar and Stanglar images!!!!!! When I seen that I was so excited I felt like I could not breathe!! I have been trying to get some of these on eBay but I gave up seeing how I can't understand anything because they only sell them in Sweden!!!!! The catch is that her tween son is going to be picking out the winner!!! You know I only have girls so I am not sure if I have anything to appeal to him!!

Anyway it was a great challenge and I had fun coming up with this card!! The image is one that I purchased off eBay. I wanted to put a castle behind her so I traced the image on tracing paper then masked the original!! The problem was a little ink went through...argh!! But it isn't THAT bad!
I used Bo Bunny paper with bazzil bling cardstock. The other stamp I used is from CTMH's princess set!! The flowers are Hero Arts flowers and the rub-ons are from Me and My Big Ideas!! I colored Tilda's and the frogs crown with my sakura glitter pen and I used ultra fine crystal snow for her wings!! The inside says "You have to kiss alot of frogs to meet your prince." I hope you like her but more importantly I hope Marlene's son likes her (LOL)!!

Sorry to go on but I really am so excited about these images. They are the cutest!! If you never seen them make sure you stop by Marlene's Blog. She makes beautiful cards using them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Congrats on winning the blog candy. It is a beautiful card! I really like how you added the castle in the background. Where did you get the castle stamp and what does CMTH stand for? Thanks
