The Frog Princess ATC

Made this ATC for UKS ATC Fairytale swap :) I loved making an opening card and using glossy accents on her crown and on the frog :)

The Stamp is Tilda as the Frog Princess, paper is CherryArtes Bedtime buds... and water colour pencils :)

The story inside reads.....
Once upon a time in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped onto her lap and said, "Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper young prince that I am, and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and feel forever grateful doing so.
"That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a repast of lightly sautéed frog legs seasoned in a wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to herself and thought, "I really don't think so."
