Little Princess!

PP-Princess-Castle-wm

Hi everyone!
It is time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Christi Thorsen's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week the challenge is hosted by Christi Thorsen and she challenged us to use eyelets in our creations …. not too difficult this week *smile*. Although I must admit my poor eyelets have become very neglected since the introduction of brads, so it is good to have challenges like this.

I used Paper Pretties “Lady Sophia” to create my card. I decided to create a Side Stair Step card …. a princess needs a castle right! I seem to be having a run of making these type of cards this week …. especially after I created the Double Sided Stair Step card that I posted on my blog yesterday. I decided to create this one so it looked a little like a castle, so I also cut down at the top fold and then folded those pieces in to resemble the top of the castle.

I still need to work out how I was going to use my eyelets on my card, and I found these cross eyelets that I got from a Papercrafts show earlier in the year so decided to use those.
