Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #2


Here's my card for the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #2! I loved this sketch and knew what I wanted to do immediately--and that just doesn't happen to me often, I'm more of a by-the-seat-of-my-pants card maker. :-D I had gotten some Zoe Pearn patterned paper as a free "thank you" throw-in with an online order and I fell in love with it. The colors and retro style remind me of the decor in the bedroom my sister and I shared as kids in the '70s. Our sheets were the colors of the viney paper, only with Raggedy Ann and Andy on them, with avocado green bedspreads. Our closet doors were painted reddish-orange. We had (and my sister still has in a storage closet) a toy chest of these colors with a flowered pattern just like the accent flowers. Guess who I'm going to send this card to? She is going to laugh when it arrives because she will immediately get it! I love sharing a brain with my sister, LOL! I had fun with the stitching and want to remember to do that more often. Thanks for letting me play along Paper Dolls!
