Cards for my little princesses

Here is the card I made for my granddaughters. They love dressing up and when I found this paper on Sunday, I just knew it would be perfect for a card for them. I made 2 cards exactly alike. Naturally, I couldn't wait to use my new cuttlebug! The papers I used are both from Imaginisce and is from the Fairest of Them All line. I cut out the castle and coach from one of the sheets of paper and then used a fiskars border heart punch on the princess tiara paper. I really like the way this card turned out. I did case a card that someone else made (the castle portion) and if it's your card I cased, please let me know so that I can give credit where credit is due. The rest of the card is entirely my own design. I also typed up the following poem that I found on the net and put it on the inside of the card:

Dressing Up

In the funny world of "make believe"
It's marvelous you see -
How you can be all of those things
You'll ever want to be:
A beautiful young princess, a cowboy, or a clown,
A lion from the circus that's coming up to town.
A graceful ballerina, a nurse or movie star,
A famous racing driver in a big, red shiny car.
You don't need many things you know,
Just a string of beads or two,
A floppy hat, a cast-off skirt
A cardboard box ... and
