Cinderella

My great niece will be seven this weekend, so I wanted to make a girlie card for her.  It's not the easiest of card to photograph, with three Mirri card die cuts - four if you count the tiny shoe!  
The backing paper is from a Dovecraft paper pad called 'Princess Fairytale'.  Cinderella is a Frantic Stamper die, 'Princess & Shoe'. There are two dies in the set and I've placed the shoe on the path where Cinderella dropped it!  The castle is a Spellbinders die, 'Sandcastle Inn', but works well as a fairytale castle.  I've borrowed both these dies, but I think they'll be making their way onto my wishlist.  :-)  The number 7 is die cut with Sizzlet die from the Block Party alphabet set.  I find that Mirri card gets marked when cut with Sizzlets dies, so I solved the problem by putting a piece of plain card between the die and the Mirri card, then running it through my Big Shot. I've added three white heart-shaped pearls to finish my card.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  12. What a delightful card for a 7 yr old. (they all seem to love purple shades too). The mirror diecuts look quite metallic in this monitor, but so very pretty. Looks like these cut & embossed very nicely. The castle would also work great for Halloween themes too, I'll bet. Yeah, I think you should invest in this set! TFS & Hugs
