Happily Ever After

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Happy Cinco de Mayo. We just had a great celebration at my son's home last evening. Everyone brought some great Mexican dishes. I ate way too much as did everyone.  My contribution was chicken enchiladas. It was a new recipe that I had never made before but all the reviews were good so I tried it. Everyone liked them so this one is a keeper for me.

Now for my card for today. This one I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog. Today, I am featuring the Knight + Princess Dress-Up dies. Check out the names of the princesses - Elsa, Snow White and Belle. When I saw these dies I immediately thought of wedding, anniversary or even a Valentine card. So this will be the card I will give my hubby for our anniversary. Let's get started with some details on how I created this clean and simple card.

I went with the colors on the packaging for both images. Belle's dress matches the Knight's shield, banner and helmet decoration. I used Stampin'-Up smoky slate, basic grand highland heather. The hair is chocolate chip although it looks much darker in this photo. 
I colored her face and arms with Prismacolor pencils. 

 Then decided on my card colors. I bought this paper pack from Hobby Lobby that has cardstock that has a watercolored look to it. I chose one of the blue sheets. I wanted a green slope on the card front so I cut one from another sheet that had a green at the bottom.

With the help of my MISTI, I stamped my sentiment at the top of my designer paper panel in a grape ink. I got a good image the first time but I didn't think it was dark enough so I stamped it again. That's the beauty of the MISTI. I thought the sentiment was perfect for an anniversary card.

Now that the card elements are ready, I can start card assembly. Attached the grassy slope to the image panel with double sided tape. Then the image panel to the white layer.

My Knight and Princess Belle were attached with dimensional adhesive. To complete my card, I added a few hearts and attached the card to the highland heather base. Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time…….God bless.
