Last night, I agonized over this card for more time than I care to admit! No matter what I did, I couldn't get it to look right! (I'm still not completely WOW'd with it!) I went from Plan A, all the way to Plan Z until finally giving up and going to bed. Then, this morning, I was reading Faith Hofrichter's Blog, Stampin' with Markie's Mom where she had a FABULOUS card posted using this stamp set, Perfect Princess. Faith's card is HERE. She made it look so-o-o easy. Faith's inspiration didn't stop there! This layout is based on this card of Faith's on SCS. I also picked up a couple of ideas for this card from Faith's OTHER Perfect Princess card on SCS for SC120 HERE. See how talented she is! .... I can barely do one card, and she has done TWO beautiful ones!!! Faith and I also corresponded via e-mail this morning ... her encouraging words kept me from scratching this project completely! Thanks to Faith for getting me through this card! It doesn't hold a candle to Faith's creations, but it's done!RECIPE
