Princess and the frog card

It was a HaPpY HaPpY 3rd Birthday for my beautiful princess Emma.  She is such a girly girl. She loves to dress in all the pretty make believe dresses and jewelry.  So much fun!  I made her a card from the The Princess and the Frog.  This has special meaning to me because my Grandma used to read this book to me when I was a little girl.  I still have the book although it is missing the cover and the pages are very brittle....... you'd think I was a 99 years old or something lol!!  Actually I think we just wore the poor book out.

I used paper from a paperstack I bought at Michaels called Once Upon a Time.  I also used a digi image from Elisabeth Bell called "My Prince". I cut out the words from my Storybook Cricut Cartridge and added some Stickles to give them some bling.
I colored the princess and the frog, added some bling to her tiera and some little tiny purple beads to her dress.  The really cool thing is that the paper on the base of the card is actually the story of The Princess and the Frog.... not that anyone would really notice that but me. haha.
I cut out the princess once I had colored her with my Copics and then pop dotted her onto the background paper.  I also cut out a strip of paper with a border punch and pop dotted it in front of the princess to give it more dimension.  I placed it all on an easel card so she could read the little story I made up about her and and look at the princess at the same time.

Happy Birthday Emma... Grandma loves you bunches!
