It Worked for Cinderella

So after we got back from our trip to Niagara Falls, I had to get caught up on everyone's blogs and stampy goodness and all that, and I kept seeing cards with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits and I hadn't played with mine too much yet so that idea stuck in my brain.  And the SUO Challenge this week is to use dies and/or punches, so that seemed like a really good idea.

And then....I saw this week's Retro Rubber Challenge.


And I had an idea.

A really silly idea.

And it made me giggle.

Like, a lot.

So may I present to you....


CINDERELLA'S PUMPKIN CARRIAGE.  I hope it looks like a carriage to you?  I was thinking of the white pumpkins they have out front of my grocery store, plus in the movie Cindy's pumpkin carriage is white/light blue.  The jewel paper seemed to just go with the theme.  The pumpkin and the little viney sproings are from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits, and the "wheels" are a little floral stamp from Butterfly Basics which is 2 1/2 years old for the Retro challenge.  They're popped up on Dimensionals, and the whole white square panel is also on Dimensionals...and the white is Shimmery White, so it looks nice and magical in person too.

I used the Sunday Stamps sketch:


I wanted to add some kind of sentiment to the inside of the card, but I wasn't sure what to use until I happened to catch sight of the Designer Tee stamp set.


"Don't quit your day dream."  PERFECT.  And I know who's going to get my Cinderella card too; she's my SIL's favorite Disney princess.  And I have a postage stamp with Cinderella's wicked stepmother on it too!  Ha!

ACK!  I need to get moving to the gym this morning.  Cheers, y'all!

Yep, your clever idea made me giggle and smile too! Just too cute. Love your flowery wheels and the jewel paper is just right. The only thing better would have been glass slipper paper! Thanks for joining us again and for sharing this sweet creation with us at Retro Rubber.
