You’re Such a Doll!

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for January, Joanne Grzelak has given us another fun challenge.

Being the 3rd Saturday of the month it is also time for another sponsored challenge. This time round our sponsor is My Favorite Things, now everyone should know I LOVE MFT!



Our challenge this week is to create a child’s birthday card … easy peasy!

I just love the Pure Innocence range of stamps that is sold by My Favorite Things and of course these are perfect for a child’s birthday card. As I hadn’t played with one of the newest PI’s in my collection PI – Paper Dolls I decided to use for my card today. I have paper pieced the girls dress as well as the paper dolls she is holding in here hand.

The PI Girl was layered onto the MFT Die-namics Oval Decorative Doily.The sentiment has been stamped and layered using the MFT Die-namics Bracket Tab. Along the bottom of the card I used the MFT Die-namics Paper Doll Border to create the cute Paper Doll Border … isn’t it adorable!

Here is the inside of my card. The sentiment was first stamped onto the MFT Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label, this is a nice long label die which will fit those larger sentiments which won’t fit onto the other label die-namics. This was then layered onto the MFT Die-namics Oval Decorative Doily. I also added the MFT Die-namics Paper Doll Border this time using the same designer paper that I used on the PI image on the front of the card.
