I vote for Pixie Pink. That is one of my favorite colors. Pretty in Pink is too washed out for me. I think it goes well with green galore, ballet blue and chocolate chip. Good luck with the birthday!

I like Pretty in Pink. There are alot of colors that look good with it. I like Pale Plum, Certainly Celery with it. I would guess for princess theme you would stick with a pink and a purple with white cardstock or velium. A shimmery cardstock would be pretty too.

When I think princess I think a brighter pink, so I would go with Pixie Pink....or Regal Rose. I really like the color combo on p. 86 of th Spring/Summer Collection. Regal Rose, So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Old Olive.

Princesses make me think of brighters colors - so I would opt for pixie pink. I would pair it with a purple, like lilac or lavender lace. Gable green or green galore would go well with this combo, or even turquoise. I would definitely stick with brighter colors.

I think the perfect princess colors are pixie pink, green galore, and lovely lilac (think Tinkerbell!).

How about a combination of regal rose, pretty in pink and purely pomegranate? These are shown with vanilla and close to cocoa on page 13 of the Spring/Summer Collection.
You could use the darker colors sparingly, of course!

I like Pink Passion and Pixie Pink together. I think Lovely Lilac would look nice with both colors and the three colors would be nice for a princess theme.

Maybe some Irr. Ice ep for a bit of sparkle too!

I just finished my DD's 1st birthday invites and I used that same stamp set-LOVE IT! I will try to post up some pics for you tomorrow in my gallery. But I used Pixie Pink and Lovely Lilac.
