365 Cards - #202 - Once Upon A Time

It's all about fairytales over at 365 Cards today and our card is to be inspired by your favourite fairytale. My favourite fairytale is Cinderella but the trouble was I didn't have anything in my stash that would inspire me so once again I looked to that huge gallery. . . the internet!! I found an image that I liked where Cinderella is trying on the glass slipper so obviously it was after the ball. The background paper is from DCWV Once Upon A Time paper stack of course and the Sentiment is from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I used the Zyron to create a sticker out of it and there was glue in between the words so I sprinkled gold glitter and it stuck where the glue was. I think it gives a nice effect don't you? I made the flower embellishment out of all the papers that I used tonight but it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to but you know that saying. . .the beauty is in the imperfection.

That is all there is tonight people and it is Friday night where I am and here I am sitting at home lol which I might add is where I usually am. The nightlife does not call my name anymore thank goodness.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Kraft cardstock. DCWV Once Upon A Time paper stack and Neutrals paper stack. Image from the net. Ranger distress ink in Walnut Stain. Sentiment cut at 2" on my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. Flower was handmade with a SU brad in the centre.

LOL Michelle! I DO believe that beauty is in the imperfection... sincerely! How boring are perfect concentric circles. Yup, that flower is playful and fun and I love the Xyron-glue-glitter thing, too. How awesome is that, to turn an 'ooops' into something FABULOUS! You rock!
