Over on http://www.pinkpetticoat.blogspot.com/ there was a challenge to make a 'sour cream carton' using Pink Petticoat papers, and decorate it. This ended up being much brighter than I had planned, and the pale pink heart paper is a bit lost under the paper-pieces trees and owls! I wanted a design that would make use of the twisting sides of the pouch, and went for the tree because they fill the upper part of the sides as they widen. I added a cheerful greeting printed out from the computer. The owl and tree pattersn are from the latest issue of Creativity magazine.

This card uses some of the latest stamps from http://www.kirstenlappingdesigns.com/. Both the castle and the girl come from the 'Princesses' set, as do the small words on the ribbon. The background paper came in a pack from a pound shop - it's so pretty I wish I could remember which one! The buttons which spell 'Princess' were part of the prize from Craftime, and I thought they'd go beatutifully with these images. I added some sequin flowers and gem butterfly to the watercoloured images, and tied it all together with a ribbon.
