A Princess' Birthday

Good Morning everyone!  I hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  I am having a really fabulous one.  I have been spending time with some friends and been having a great time.

Speaking of friends, one of them commissioned me to make 3 cards for her daughter who turned 5 over the weekend.  She is really into the Disney Princesses.  So I set out to find some fun coloring pages which are digi stamps on a large scale, to create these cards.  Here's what a I created.

This first one is my favorite.  I am so pleased with how this card came out.  I was able to use some flowers that I have had for so long.  I did use a sketch from jac-inks Papercraft Challenges.

This is Princess Tiana and I am really proud of how I colored her.  I haven't done African-American very often and I think I got her fleshtones just right.  The picture doesn't do this card justice.  The papers used are glitter papers and look so pretty.  The layout is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  It's been a long time since I've used one of Arlana's sketches, too long!

And my last one features Snow White and my favorite little Dwarf, Dopey.  This is fun card!  The sketch is from Sketch and Stash and my stashed item are the rhinestone flowers.

Well that's all I have to share with you today.  Now I need to work up my energy to get all my cards done today.  It's been a lazy Sunday.  I started this post this morning and am finally finishing it at 4:20 pm!  Crazy!!  Have a super day.

What a great idea. All three cards are fabulous--your coloring is fantastic and the papers you used fit each princess's personality just right. I'm partial to the Cinderella card. She's my 7-year-old's favorite princess. We actually had dinner at her palace a few weeks ago, and "Cindy" is a lovely princess ;)

They are all I'm singing in my head "some day my prince will come"...I love to use colouring pages when an image is not in my draw, they are great.
Fabulous colouring.
