Paper Pretties Sponsors Oh, Alice Challenge!

Stamps: Paper Pretties 'Lady Sophia', sentiment from 'Imagine'. Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Rose Red, Papertrey white, Basic Grey 'Green at Heart' DP. Ink: Memento, Copics, Purely Pomegranate. Accessories: Long rectangle Nestabilties, primas, Papertrey button, Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

This week Paper Pretties is sponsoring the fun and quirky challenge blog, 'Oh, Alice!'. The theme is 'little girls' and perfect for Lady Sophia because doesn't every little girl dream of being a princess? I must have been in frog mode when I colored her little bird, but let's just pretend it's very green parakeet:

This adorable gal is now on sale at Paper Pretties for only $5, including a fun 'kiss a lot of frogs' sentiment. I paper-pieced her gown with this sweet print in the perfect 'girly' colors of Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz inspired by Color Throwdown #107.

The sketch inspiration is courtesy of Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #88 and even kept the flower element because every princess needs a few blooms! Flowers and gems -- Sophia has Dazzling Diamond accents on her gown, too!

Big thanks going out to my generous stamping buddies Tracy for sharing her Papertrey buttons and Patti for sending an awesome selection of the new In Colors!

Be sure to stop by the Paper Pretties blog and Oh, Alice! for more inspiration to celebrate your inner child!! Play along for your chance to win -- Paper Pretties is offering a Prize of rubber stamps to ONE lucky winner!
