Paper Dolls - Challenge #10



This card is for the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #10! I struggled with colors. I just could not decide what to use. I took out my four favorite colors and went to town. I decided to use Tea for Two since it's new (to me). The raspberry fizz paper looked a little plain so I stamped some polka dots on it. I added some doodly looking things to the scallops to spice it up a little. I even did the inside of the card because Michelle (abzzymom) inspired me to do so! 

This sketch gave me the inspiration I needed to make a card, which I haven't done in a few days. Now I'm waiting for my second PTI order. I was able to get the jar and lid die to work, and since I had some extra coins from taking on an OP teacher, I added some simply chartreuse paper and a few other small things. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that it'll come on Monday because playing with Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fillers is just NOT fun without the matching dies...all of them.

What a great idea to switch the orientation of this sketch. It's always good to see how versatile a sketch can be!

This is beautiful! I love how you turned the sketch to the side, but I really think the inside is my favorite. Love the outline of the teapot and the sentiment going through!
