My project for today is an invitation. My granddaughter is totally taken with the movie Tangled. This is my take on that theme.

I started with the doll, dress and hair from Paper Doll Dress Up. The doll and dress are cut at 3". For the hair, I unlinked the height and width and set the height to 5"

The face is a Peachy Keen stamp. I added glitter gel pen to the hair and white to the dress.

The background is from my rather large collection of clip art from PCrafters ( no longer around :(  ) The artist is Carolee Jones. I printed this twice so I could layer one part of the hill.

The tower is part of the castle from Once Upon a Princess - Cut at 5".  I cut it away from the castle , embossed with the Herringbone folder and sanded it. The ivy is from Paper Doll Dress Up and is cut at 2". I cut the ivy in 2 shades of green.

The sun is from Disney Family. I printed the template, colored it and added some Glitter gel pen.

 The you're invited is done on the computer and the inside is a stamp from AC Moore.

I hope I haven't left anything out:)

I have blog candy for you too ! $15.00 Gift Card to the winners choice... Micheals, AC Moore or Hobby Lobby! Please be a follower and leave me a comment, that's it ! I will draw the winner on Wednesday the 14th.

Thank you for checking out my project. I hope that you will become a follower of SweetSassyDiva and leave a comment.
