Another Dolly Creation...


Hi Girls

It's time again for another Dolly challenge over at The Paper Nest Dolls..  and it's another Anything Goes theme.. so no reason not to enter...

I chose to use Birthday Balloon Ellie...  and I decided to move away from my beloved pink and go for a touch of lilac!!  I used an embossing folder for the background...  then coloured Ellie with my Copics and fussy cut around her..  so she stands out from the white panel.  I cut the balloons out separately and added glitter (of course)...  then added a ribbon and button and she was complete!  

Hope you like her as much as I do...  she's available HERE!

Remember, there are some lovely prizes to be won if you enter... check them out on the challenge blog.

It's the start of the week, hope this weather stays and you all have a good one!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

  14. Hi Christine, she's gorgeous! Lovely colour choice /colouring and the balloons are just beautiful.

    Sounds like Harrogate has gone down hill a bit - think I've probably made the right choice to not go anymore and stick to the new one at Lincoln.

    Still looks like you've managed to get a nice little haul tho!


    PS - No worries about my In the Pink entry, I wasn't sure if it was pink enough myself.

  15. So sweet Christine - love those sparkly balloons!

    Your comment did make me laugh, what a fun sentiment... will try to remember it but I bet I won't! :o) Hugs, Lisa x
