Princess Castle Birthday Card

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I want to say thank you for all the kind words people were leaving about my paper roses tutorial...  It made me feel great, and you are all awesome!!!  :)  Anywho, today's card is a very whimsical/fantasy card.  I would definitely give this to one of my nieces, or perhaps someone who loves Disney because it just has a Disney feel to it....  I have really been wanting to go to Disneyland lately!!!  Oh man, now I'm thinking about it again....  :)

Birthday Sundaes- anything goes birthday card
Die Cuttin' Divas- shaped card
Paper Cutz Challenge- include anything that has to do with the sky
Cupcake Inspirations- use the picture for inspiration (the picture is full of princess stuff & pink)




Cricut cartridges used:
Wrap it Up- castle cut at 5.82"
Create a Critter- cloud cut at W-4.63 x H-1.85" (I pushed the little chain icon on my Gypsy to make this size)
3 Birds on Parade- wand cut at 22.53"
Cuttlebug- tiny mosaic, floral fantasy
Sentiment- Paper Trey Ink Mega Mixed Messages stamp set
Martha Stewart sea lavendar ink (that's what I used to ink the cloud edges)
A la Mode sparkle embossing powder (I embossed the star, flag, the edges of the cloud, and the rooftops)
White gel pen

Hope you enjoy!  I wish you a magical day!!! :)

OMG This is too CA-UTE!! I have never used a cricut cutter, but have drooled (ok, lusted) over them for quite sometime. As a Disneyland expert (I live less than 20 minutes away and have a season pass), let me say that this is much better than any card I've ever seen in their gift shops. You are truly gifted and talented!! Thank you for sharing, Amy!!

Amy, this is exquisite! All the texture is incredible, the colors are so pretty, the inking is stunning, and the entire thing is just magical in every way. I LOVE how you put the sentiment in a magic wand. I totally want this card. ;) It's just so happy, whimsical, and all things sparkly happy. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
