Hello Dolly!


Hello Everyone,

After catching up on my housework, I sat down and made a card for a few different challenges. I really love to participate in different challenges and I'm going to make an effort to do so more often.



Would you believe that I have had this darling Ketto's Dolly image stored away for month's and just got around to inking her up this morning?? What is wrong with me?!?! Dolly is colored in with Copic Markers and embellished with Stickles. Card stocks PTI and Bazzill... Other embellishments are ribbon and half pearls... sentiment by MFT... Other tools,Cuttlebug embossing folder, MS scalloped border and butterfly punch.

My card is for the following challenges....
*Midnight Madness....... sketch challenge
* Die Cuts R Us ........No designer or patterned paper
*The Pink Elephant........ribbon
*Flutter By Wednesday's........ butterflies or wings on cards

Enjoy your evening and thanks so much for stopping by!

hugs:)
