Fairy Tales


This week at Sugar Creek Hollow  our  challenge theme is
'Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes'. We ask that your project reflects a fairy tale or nursery rhyme using a vintage / shabby chic style.
A Day for Daisies is our sponsor this week and I was lucky to receive this beautiful digi image to use on my card.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made.


In my world of make believe, here is Cinders reading  to her animal friend. She adds her hopes and dreams that one day the Prince would leave his castle and come to find her........
We all know how this ends, they live happily ever after.
I painted  the image with water colours, then layered it using a variety of Spellbinders die cuts.
The castle  was  framed from one of the cut out shape left overs.
The base layer and castle, came from the Once upon a Time paper stack. sorry cannot remember the maker.
The trimmings  came from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.
