Mirror, mirror on the wall....

As a young child, I loved all the fairy tales that I could hear / read. A typical girl, I guess - loving the beautiful, charming princess, hating the evil stepmother / witch etc. etc. and waiting for the Prince Charming to come and save the day :) Snow White was my all-time favorite especially because of the seven dwarfs. I mean, aren't they adorable or what?
My next card is a take on themost famous line of the story " Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" And of course, it is the wrong answer by the mirror which sends our evil character in to a fit...But what if the question was different? Hmmm.....

 This is a double-gate fold card with a lovely LOTV stamp. The thing about these stamps is that one really doesn't need to have wonderful coloring skills ( case in point, ME ) to make them look amazing. Just a few strokes of color here and there and they are good to go....The flowers are a combination of die cut and punched out. The bright orange one is made from a quilling strip I had. The sentiment is printed. And to complete the question, "Mirror , mirror on the wall...", one needs to open the ribbon and take away the image....

 And isn't that more important than being the fairest? I think so....
The papers are K&Company. The sentiment, again, is printed - I love the font - so appropriate in a royal fairy tale kind of way :)

 The inside sentiment is handwritten..Unfortunately, I forgot to take the pictures before writing my message. On the right inside panel is another place to write / sign etc.
