Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #23

It's Challenge #23 of the Hope You Can Cling To Card Drive in honour of Breast Cancer Month over on Splitcoast Stampers today and today's challenge is to make a card inspired by a fairy tale. I just got this adorable little Fairy Princess digi stamp and thought she would be perfect for this challenge. I've actually made this one for a friend at work whose 6 year old daughter is going in to hospital for an eye operation next week so I made it all cute and girly with the requested brave princess sentiment on it. Hope she likes it!

And here she is...And boy did that sentiment take me forever to do! I don't have a small enough alphabet so had to keep masking letters from sentiments in a PTI set, but I kept getting them wonky or the ink would be on the next letter and get on the paper. After about 6 attempts at doing all the words together, I gave up and decided to have them separately instead. At least this way if I had a word that was perfect I could keep it instead of starting from scratch when I messed up!
