Princess Who Kissed a Frog

 
 Well, I had internet issues yesterday and spent all afternoon without it.  What a waste of time... I finally started checking cords and cables and be darned if one wasn't loose so it was a simple fix after all.  'They' always say... make sure it's plugged in, check your connections and then re-boot so yes, when I remembered to it it, it was not a big deal after all.
I found this little gal over at Saturated Canary and had some time yesterday to build a card.  I like it when a card just falls together without a lot of stressing about papers, embellies, etc and that's what happened with this one.  I found a great sketch over at Sketch Saturday:
 
The name of this digi is Princess Who Kissed a Frog - I have bought a few of her images and must get busy and get them done up.  The flowers are some I've had in the stash forever and I pulled the centers and added the pearls.  The little leaves are from a new CC Designs die call Leafy Branch which I purchased from All That Scraps - this little die cuts beautifully and I was so impressed .  Sometimes the fine, intricate ones are hard to use but the paper pulled away easily with this one plus their shipping was very reasonable so I will be shopping there again .  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's 'So Happy For You' set and then cut with one of the Spellbinder's Labels Trio dies  and the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The papers are from a Prima Sweet Fairy Collection pad and then coloured the image with Copics.
Colours Used:  Hair E43, E33, E35;  Skin E11, E00, E000;  Dress R81, RV10, RV000;  Frog YG63, YG61, YG11
Challenges:
Saturated Canary - dies and punches (no pic but I did use a corner rounder punch on the inside of the card)
Mark's Finest Papers - birthday cards
Sentimental Sundays - Die Cuts plus a sentiment
