Love's Life's Fairytale

I've entered to the Sweet Pea Spring Design Contest. There are just so many fabulous cards. But with a prize of $50 just to use the stamps I love to play with, this was no contest. I just had to play. I would love it if you would go here and vote. If you vote for me, I'm card #10, it would be even more appreciated!

The contest requires that you only use Sweet Pea Stamps cards and images. I have only two horizontal sentiments and I like the idea of life being a fairy tale. It's what we make of it isn't it? The quote just screamed for me to use this image, Storytime by Lisa Victoria. Since the challenge on Sweet Pea Stampers is to use scallops and on a Sweet Pea Dream is to use pink, the elements started to come together.

The tricky part for me was the three decorating elements in the top right corner. I didn't want to use the standard flowers and wanted something that fit my fairytale them. The stick pin was found rummaging in my stash and I thought it added the element of riches (may we never feel want). The crown for loyalty (think of a claddagh ring) and of course the hearts because love is life's true fairy tale. I hope you enjoy!

Challenges this Card Meets:
Creative Card Crew - No Flowers
Fab N Funky - Make it Girly
My Time to Craft - Jewels (Pearls)
Paper Playtime - Pink and Glitter
Tuesday Throwdown - Use Scraps (If it's pink, its a scrap left over from doing a cousin's wedding invites two years ago.)
