Daddy's little princess



I've had a couple of orders for 'daddy's little princess' style father's day cards this year - it didn't sound too difficult but when I started I realised how hard it is to make a princess themed card for a man lol! It's always going to end up girly really isn't it? I've got to come up with something for the other one too.

The princess image is from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers and mounted on a nellie snellen circle die. I've just realised I've missed out colouring a bit of her fringe but I think I quite like it like that! The papers are from a paper cellar wedding pad, cardstock is coredinations. Computer generated lettering with a digi sentiment from Pink Petticoat. I've kept it quite simple but it's still very girly - my customer liked it though.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Beautiful card Lisa. How cool to be able to do a pink man card, I have boys though so no way round a pink fathers day card for me though!

Hi Lisa, this is lovely. I'm sure the little princess's dad will love it. I loved the one you did with the kitty too. You have been busy.

Hope you've recovered from the trauma with the car!
