It's Not Easy Being A Princess For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge



Happy Spring Everyone!! I hope wherever you are that you are enjoying a nice Spring day!! I live in Southern California, so my daffodils have already come and gone. It's kind of sad, because I love having them in my garden.  They are one of my favorite flowers next to Sweet Peas. It really makes me happy to see them. It's just nice to know though that they will be back again next year to put a big smile on my face.


Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the talented Anne. This week's challenge is to use More Than One Fold on a card or project. I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be this week's lucky winner of a wonderful prize from Dies To Die For .

For my More Than One Fold card, I decided to make a Center Step Card. I found the pattern on Teresa's Folded & Fabulous Cards CD from Hot Off The Press. I used We R Memory Keepers Love Struck Design Papers. Sweet Princess Tilda and Prince Phillip (the frog), from Magnolia-licious, were both stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I think these two images are so cute together! Tilda looks like she thinking, "It's not easy being a princess, especially when you have to kiss a frog." LOL!  Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter was added to Tilda's crown and the heart on the arch. Glossy Accents was added to the frog's crown. The arch was made using Sizzix Frame # 2 - 655028. I just cut off the bottom of the frame. The flowers on the arch are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The grass was cut using the Grass Border from Martha Stewart. The flowers on the grass are from All Natural Accents. The butterflies are stickers from Best Creations.


Thank you for stopping by!!  I always love hearing what you think of my cards!! Your comments are so appreciated!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Big Hugs,
Suzan

Suzan, gorgeous card. Love the front panel side step card--one of my fave type. Oh I forgot about the frog prince--he's just perfect to couple up with the princesses. Fab colouring. Love the grass border.

Ain't it the truth - there are a lot of frogs out there - male and female. We might even know some!!! Your card is delightful. I ask you - is a frog cute and would you want to kiss one? I would rather see your card any day. Delightful creation. 4 thumbs up!!
