Your Carriage Has Arrived

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
My niece is 5 this week. She and my girls are all going to a Princess Ball the last weekend in March. It is put on by a group of volunteers that raise money for the Mother/Baby Unit at the local Hospital. They have High School girls come dressed as all the Disney Princesses and they decorate the banquet room just unbelievably in a Princess theme. There is a fancy supper, a little performance by the Princesses and a little dance with the Princesses. I have so far successfully avoided going all the years they've put it on. People would line up before 5am (in the Wintertime) for tickets and I thought that was crazy. And they would sell out! However, this is the last year and Grandma offered to buy the tickets and Daddy offered to go stand in line (at least it was indoors this time). How can you say no? And I know they will LOVE it. So a Princess/Fairy/Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach glittery card was the perfect fit for Marley.
I used Glitter Cardstock to make my easel card and carriage. Both are Silhouette cut files. It is very thick cardstock and I had to go over it a lot of times to actually get everything cut out. And that was with the blade on it's deepest setting. My image is Fairy Princess by Mo Manning. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils. Gold Stickles are on her wand and crown. The letters are Thickers and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.
2 pictures, one darker, one a little lighter. It's tricky taking a picture of the glitter cardstock. 

I would like to share my card at:
