so sweet

It's time for a new Caardvarks Challenge, and the sponsor this time is My Favorite Things.  They sent us some cute stamps to play with, and I had some fun with THIS sweet little girl.  I don't normally use people images, but this one is adorable.  LOVE that her lolly is almost as big as her face.  I want one. :)
So I decided to make some shaped cards for a change - it's been AGES.  I used my yummy scallop Nestabilities that a dear friend gave me, cut two, scored one and adhered on the back to create the fold.  Love this technique.
On this one, I paper pieced her dress and shoes using some of THIS yummy dotty paper from Papertrey Ink.  I added Glossy Accents and loads of Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter to the lollipop.
And on this one, I decided to a bit of colouring.  I am TERRIBLE at colouring people (I failed Art at school you know...) so I stamped her onto some Hero Arts Eggshell Layering Paper and added a few coloured elements.  I love THIS patterned paper... 
Hope you can enter the challenge - click HERE for all the details and to see the prize!!!!
