Shabby Princess for Sketch Saturday.......

Good Afternoon!!
I had to hurry and get a card made for
Sketch Saturday! (Did you see that adorable stamp!!!)
Anyways I had a card all planned out but then my
mail came and I got some of the Princess images from
Magnolia-licious! (Lovely service!!)

Anyways I did another shabby chic card! I guess
once I got started with them I can't stop!
This is a birthday card for one of Kelsey's friends
so it qualifies for Cute Card Thursday's challenge
of celebrations. (I think!)

Don't mind the wet paint in the corner!! haha
I just made this one so fast and didn't want to wait
as I needed to get it posted!!!

Papers again are Webster's Pages, I used a ton of
distress paint from Tim Holtz, lace is from JoAnn's and
the flowers are from Prima.
I used some of the new distress inks to color in the image.
The dress is spun sugar and the frog is crushed olive. I
also went over it with some twinkling h2o's as well!

Well thanks so much for stopping by! I hope
you liked the card! I am surprised how much
I like it and it didn't take me days! LOL

We have another busy week-end and then Monday
hubby has a double hernia surgery! So depending
on how that goes I might not be around much!
I hopefully will get around to hopping tonight!
If not I hope you all have a fabulous week-end!

AAAHHH this is gorgeous! I can't wait to get my stamps! Maybe mine will be there when I get home and I can get to play with this Tilda, too :) By the way, what kind of paper do you use for your watercoloring? I just bought Distress Inks and I'm trying to find some good paper for them to use on :) Thanks for the help and beautiful card!!
