The Evolution of Rapunzel

I brained stormed last night and came up with a working layout for my Daughters Rapunzel invitation.
It's now a postcard style invitation.

I used Su - Crosshatch on the main body of the castle and the argyle from Su - Looks like Spring on the Turrets and Roof

Looks better then the free hand bricks on the mock up. I also have to tweek the Castle outline, I have noticed the it's not symmetrical. As well the light pink paper is from a random stack and is not quite thick enough quality for a postcard style invitation.

Stamps: Looks like Spring, All Year Cheer II, Crosshatch
Paper: Riding Hood Red, random pink
Ink: Ruby Red, Black, Versamark
Accessories: Nestabilities, jewel, ribbon, rickrack, flower decals

Rapunzel Invite

My daughters 5th Birthday is next month, but she really wants to have a Rapunzel themed Party at our local theatre when the Disney movie is released late November. We agreed to hold off her party until then.

I decided to mock up a potential card for her invites.

I found the instructions for a tri-fold castle card here @ A Path of Paper. I used only the back and middle portions as well as scaling it all down in Photo shop in order to fit a 5 1/5 x 4 1/4 card face.

I used rick rack for the hair. I am not satisfied with the brick work, but will mull it over some more.

I made these yesterday afternoon, but due to the rainy Canadian weather the pictures I took turned out to dark, so I had to retake them today which thankfully is sunny.

This is for the Clean & Simple Challenge #CAS86 inspired by Cookiebaker.

My take on an even simpler version of the above card.
