Happy Birthday Christine Paperdolls Blog Hop

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTINE!

This is a special surprise blog hop for Christine, the designer behind The Paper Nest Dolls rubber stamp images.  They are so precious and each of the images depicts a person in her life, usually her children :)  You couldn't ask for any better inspiration, could you Christine?  Well, I am so excited to be part of The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Design Team, and when I was asked by Monica to participate in this blog hop, how could I say NO!

I chose the new design image "Ballgown Avery".

I really enjoy the ballgown images that Christine designs, must be the little girl in me always wanting to play dress up :)  Everything in this project, aside from the rubber stamp is from my stash, right down to my own hand-made flower.  I had a great time creating this piece.  You can find this rubber stamp online in The Paper Nest Dolls store.

I know, a couple extra pics today, but I couldn't help myself, I am very proud of this card.  I feel like maybe I am graduating into the "Fancy Card" grade, lol.

I colored this image with my Prismacolor Premiere pencils, which I so love to use, in the following colors:

Hair - PC1012, 1034, 942, 1094, 947
Skin - PC927, 939
Dress - PC1040, 903, 1100, 938
Flower - PC911, 903, 938, 1100
Bow - PC1061, 938
