Princess is here...

I love the challenges :) and Casology's Cue Card challenge is one of those that intrigue you to think and be creative. This time the theme is ROYAL. So here's my card...

The moment I saw Royal, I wanted to create a chariot, a symbol of royalty so I thought about Cinderella. I am sure you all have read about her story. I used to fantasize about her chariot on how the fairy made it with a pumpkin... during my bed time stories in childhood. So today, I made my fantasy come alive ;)
I was inspired by the Sketch at Annabelle Stamps blog AC163 to create my card. I used vellum to make the body of the chariot and some flourish stamps for the rest of the Chariot. Vellum was colored by inks using sponge. The sentiment that would go perfectly with this was "Princess is here", basically an announcement for the arrival of a baby girl :) I printed it on a banner from MS-word.

The challenges are -

Hope you like my card :)

Supplies used
Paper -White card stock, vellum
Dies - Nestabilities oval, Sizzix circle 
Stamps - Inkadinkadoo Circles and dot clear stamps
Ink- Memento Dew Drops
