Through the Craft Room Door ~ Pretty as a Princess!

Hello Blogland,

I hope this new post finds you well. Today over at Through the Craft Room Door challenge blog I have posted this adorable card I made while away on a scrapbook retreat in Hiawassii GA. I played with the Cricut machine while there and made this adorable castle card. I imagined it with brick or cobble stone front pieces but didn't have the paper. One of the other ladies there had her scraps with her and gave me just enough to be able to cut out this beauty! She also gave me the cloud paper for a backdrop. It is amazing what scraps can do! Thank you Kris!

The image I have used here is a Magnolia stamp named "Princess Tilda Curl" from the Once Upon A Time Collection. I have used all scraps in the making of this card and colored the image using Copic markers which are available over at OOZAK, this week's sponsor. Oozak has lots of stamps and supplies and they always have wonderful customer service. Check them out of you get a chance.
