Here's the Design Team:

I have two cards to share with you today.  The first one uses the Paper Doll Frances along with the Bundle Up set and some Bo Bunny Prairie Chic designer paper.  After stamping the doll and clothes in memento ink onto white card stock then coloring with prismacolor markers, I then cut everything out before adhering together and layering.  The saying is stamped directly onto the designer paper in black ink along with sequin snowflakes added to the card using micro glue dots.
The second card uses the Paper Doll Frances  along with Her Majesty set paired with some Die Cuts With A View Timeless Collection designer paper, two die cut crown borders and regal color tones.  The images are again stamped in memento black then colored using prismacolor markers before being cut out and adhered together.  I then layered the completed paper doll directly onto the designer paper, added ribbon, and punched out saying and pearl flourish.  My final touch was to add some white flock to the "fur lining" of the queen's coat and crown.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
