Your Carriage Awaits

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne posting today.  I have a card for those of you who believe in fairytales!  This was a simple card to make with an unexpected (but fun) twist on the background.
I started by cutting the pieces from the Princess Carriage and Fairytale Princess dies using white and gold card stock.  I colored the pieces using Distress Oxide inks.
I assembled the pieces and used a small piece of Dazzling Diamonds glitter card stock for my shoe.
I wanted something besides a plain background so I decided to stencil one using a fleur de lis pattern I have.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink on a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Highland Heather panel.  I thought I would just have one purple shade on another but the combination has an almost iridescent quality.
It is difficult to see in the photos but the color of the background shifts as you tilt the card.  You can see it a bit in the photo below.
To finish the card, I adhered the assembled panel to a purple A2 card base.  The pillow and shoe are lifted using foam dots and I added gold rhinestones to the center of the wheels.


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
