Dies R Us Challenge - Kids Kards

Hello Everyone!
It's mid month and that means time for another challenge 
over at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog
With the start of a new year, I thought it might be nice if I joined the DT and played along from time to time.  So here I am today sharing a card for the new 'Kids Kards' challenge.  I hope you'll come join in the fun and remember to use dies carried by companies represented at the Dies R Us Store.


The dies I have used on today's card are as follows:
 I can't seem to keep enough little girl birthday cards in my stash so that's the direction I went in today.  What little girl doesn't dream of being a princess and of course Cinderella in particular.  Dies R Us has a wonderful collection of Disney dies for both girls and boys ... be sure to check it out.  This die even comes with a stamp to create her beautiful face.  As you can see, a bit of fussy cutting was done to give her this beautiful gown and hair piece.  The main body die was cut from ivory card stock for a more realistic feel ... but she sure looks really white in these photos. LOL


For Cinderella's dress, I used (even though it looks red) a bright berry pink colored glitter paper from the Paper Studio Glitter 6x6 paper pack.   And the top edger was die cut from mauve foil paper.

The background paper I chose to use with my Cinderella & Sparkle theme is from the First Edition Paper 'Love Letters' 6x6 paper pad.  I've had this paper pad for a long time and it worked perfectly today because some of the papers are doubled sided and some papers have touches of sparkle on them ... perfect!

Oooh, what a great combination of dies! The SW die is perfect with pretty Cinderella, and I'm kinda loving this particular set of IO toppers. Looks like something I'd use a lot. Love making kids' cards but don't get much chance anymore. Just the three little girls next door. So cute, Darlene!

This is a great card for a little princess. The glitter really makes it beautiful.

How sweet is this? I have looked at this die often and thought I probably wouldn't use it, but I love how you have paper pieced it to make it come to life. Oh, and it's mid-month!!! What is UP with that? Geesh - one step closer to spring.

So very pretty, such lovely shimmer on the dress and great detail in it, that is so neat it comes with a stamp for the face features, and such pretty framing of it!
