Wonderful Life

Here we are with the first week of April already gone!
My goodness it sure goes fast doesn't it?

Which also brings us to a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy
being hosted by our lovely teammate Beth
and sponsored by Magnoila-licious .

The challenge theme is 'Pink and Green'
perfect for this time of year!


I started with a 5 x 5 square card stock base
and 'built' my card from there.


The image used is Tilda With Prince Froggy.
I colored it with my Copics, adding a bit of Clear Star to the crowns
and shoe bottoms for a bit of 'sparkle'.
The dress was stamped on a little snippet of gingham and then fussy cut out
and paper pieced on. 


I 'framed' the image, then added flowers and a burlap butterfly to finish.
The sentiment is part of a paper pad which I have listed below.

Now, head on over to the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog and take a peek at
what the other FAF girls have created.....the projects are GORGEOUS!!

Pixie's Snippets Playground .... Snippets
Word Art Wednesday .... ATG
Ruby's Rainbow .... Paper Piecing

Products used:

Diane, this is so adorable. I generally am not a fan of Tilda, but I do like this cute image. I like that you paper pieced her dress and the beautiful blooms. Have a good weekend.
