As the fairies are happily granting gifts of beauty, generosity, grace, song and temperament, they are suddenly interrupted by the sudden presence of the evil fairy Carabosse, who is furious at the King's failure to invite her to the ceremony. With spite and rage, Carabosse declares her curse on Princess Aurora: she will one day prick her finger and die. The Lilac Fairy, fortunately, has not granted her gift to the Princess. She acknowledges that Carabosse's power is immense and she cannot completely reverse the curse. However, she declares, although the Princess will prick her finger, the Princess will not die, but instead sleep for 100 years. The Princess will only be awoken by the kiss of a Prince"--Wikipedia (July 2006).
