Card no. 111 - (Almost) Every Girl wants to be a Princess

Oh, my Gosh! Is it Saturday already? Well, I've been trying to keep busy this week and boy oh, boy! It was AWESOME!!!
I designed a daily schedule with meal planner (to save and reduce any and all waste) and chores (so it gets DONE) and it's so much easier for me to be focused .... organization! I love it!
I have got soooo much done - GOOD WEEK!

Times are tough, but we will get through it - with a help of family & friends (& crafting).

Anyways, my super sweet mother-in-law, Heather, who runs a very important Charity - Robert Urich Foundation for Cancer Research, has asked me to make few cards (to donate for an auction) for our upcoming Benefit - Californians for a Cure - hosted at the Music Box Hollywood on November 6. 
I struggled what kinds of cards to make and as I always adored the simpler designs, I went with it.

This is first card of many (more to come - that I still need to make). I will be busy in the upcoming few weeks, and also will try to make few certificates for personalized stationery. 
So keep up with me... 

The Front View

I used the goooorgeous Whiff of Joy image from the newest collection, colored with Copics, ProMarkers and Stickles (StarDust). Papers are S.E.I. (Chick-A-Dee) and Making Memories (Butterfly Flower Patch). Ribbon is by Martha Stewart. Pearls from my stash and brad by Whiff of Joy. The lacy paper Heart doily is from  Little Yellow Bicycle.
I sewn the edges on my sewing machine and the inside looks (almost) the same as the outside.

The Detail

I used Mariska's 3D Technique to make the beautiful Princess to pop-out and give the card a little dimension. So, I guess not that simple after all ....

And, to spread the word, I am entering these challenges:
Whiff of Joy Challenges - Jane's Sketch
Alphabet Challenges - Q for Quick and Simple
Anything Goes Challenges - Anything goes
Stamping for the Weekend - What a Cutie
Addicted to Stamps - Stitching
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Frame it up

Well, that's it from me ... 
Have a fantastic weekend!
Hugs,
