hello... little prince

Hey friends!!  Popping with a card for the current Less is More, little ones, challenge, as well as the current Stampin' Celebration challenge... a lovely sketch.  


Using the "little ones" theme I went with a baby card and used the super cute Lawn Fawn set Hello Baby.   The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Jubilee Mint Julep 6x6 pad.  I fiddled around with several light green inks before deciding to use VersaMagic Aloe Vera for the lily pad and grass.  The little frog prince was die cut from some of the patterned paper and stamped in black.  I added Crystal Stickles to his crown.   The dotted ric rac looking border was cut with a Top Dog Dies border die.  In hindsight I think I should have stamped the "hello" in another spot instead of next to the "little prince", but I do like how everything turned out.

Thanks for stopping by..

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft; Stamps and dies:  Lawn Fawn; Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye; Crystal Stickles;  Border die:  Top Dog Dies, Inks:  VersaMagic, Memento Tuxedo Black, Hero Arts Cup o' Joe

Your card is simply darling. I love the soft shades of green you used and the sparkle you added to the prince's crown. Personally, I like the sentiment the way you placed it. :) Thanks for joining us at the Stampin' Celebration Challenge.
