Your challenge today, Shoe Girl, had me down the rabbit hole (no, not Alice), but another master fairy story teller: Hans Christian Andersen! There is a wonderful web site that has the tales printed for reading directly The Princess and the Pea. I confess to getting sidetracked reading several stories again...and hope to bring another one to the gallery this week. Thanks for this imaginative trip!
My princess has been dreaming of turning 40! She's high up there: what with sleeping on 20 mattresses and 20 eider down covers. I cut strips of double sided dp to make my stack. Paper pieced the 40th mattress underneath her. Colored her sleeping gown in Copics.
The Invoke Arts 'Princess Ticket' was inked in the Imperial Purple and embossed with clear powder. The Rhinestones symbolize 4 decades...and it that wasn't enough 40's, I have hidden another set of the number on the card...just like the Queen Mother hid the pea to but the young girl to the test!
Added the Dream Washi tape, a bit of aqua netting and this birthday card is good to go! And I have a card made 3+ weeks in advance of the occasion...that is a dream come true for me!
Thanks to you for stopping by...I appreciate reading what it was that struck you to look!

I take it this is for a special birthday! Wonderful vintage images, the ticket especially is so cool. And the tulle and royally-coloured Dream sentiment are fab. I'm thinking I need to pull the book off my shelf and re-read some of them. At least this is one I do remember.
