Hello - a princess card

This card I just put together is definitely one of my most favorite cards I've made!  I love how it all came together.  Sometimes, I start a card 2 or 3 times before I end up with something I kind of like. This one is a keeper :)

How sweet is she?!  I used the newest Princess no.4 from The Greeting Farm.  I copied the lovely Thanh Vo's idea to crop her hair a bit... it's adorable!  A sweet little princess bob.  I paper-pieced her hair, dress and crown and colored her skin with Copics.  The DP is from DCWV and the card stock is from American Crafts.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Carousel.  The leaf die is from C. C. Designs. I used the rolled paper roses die from Sizzix and the Sizzix polka dot embossing folder for some of the orange card stock.  The scallop border is from a Martha Stewart's Around-The-Page punch. The hello sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

The sketch I used is from the current GREETING FARM challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers.  It's a perfect sketch!  You'll be seeing me use it a lot.

What a perfect card Annie...these colour combo is beautiful and the paperpiercing ( your favourite style I guess ) makes the card extra special.
