Gina K's April Illustrator's Challenge

Hello everyone...hope all is well with you on this beautiful, sunny, Saturday afternoon!!! The April Illustrator's Blog Hop Challenge on Gina K's blog is to be inspired by our favorite children's book. Cinderella, by far, is my favorite!! I just love a happy ending!!! I read Cinderella to my daughter and to all my granddaughters....the story is so sweet and gives all little girls hope of a prince charming coming into their lives!! Go to Gina K's blog for all the details on how you can play, too!
I used Melanie Muenchinger's A Beautiful Life frame image...stamped it onto Webster's Pages dp with Memento Rich Cocoa. The tulip images were stamped three times onto white cs and colored with copics. They were then cutout and layered with dimensionals. The sentiment from the same set was stamped on a scrap piece of the same dp, cutout with a Nesties die and sponged around the edges with Rich Cocoa.

The butterfly, also from the same set, was colored with copics, cutout, and attached with a glue dot. Pearls and distressing finish it off for a Shabby Chic look.
Thanks for visiting today...be sure to check out all the Illustrator's blogs starting with Gina K's for lots of wonderful inspiration!!!
