This one's for the girls!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Wow another baking hot weekend and yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far, I'd be happy with a day that didn't reach 100F! LOL
I've been busy piling challenge upon challenge and todays card covers 8 (I'm determined to break past that 8 barrier soon though ;))
This one is entered into the following:
Friday Sketchers - The sketch
Dare U2 Digi - Color challenge, Pink, Black and White.
Paper Play - Fashion
Simon Says Stamp - Paper Piecing
Creative Inspirations - Gems and Pearls
Use It - 2 punches (I used a border punch and corner rounder punch), texture (I embossed the back panel with my cuttlebug), favorite paper (I'm so fickle it changes every week but I love this paper from Dovecraft that I got for winning blog candy at Suzannes blog), bonus items was pearls.
Digital Tuesday - 1, 2, 3 recipe, 1 digital image, 2 dp (one inside and one outside for me) and 3 different embellishments (for me gems, pearls and flowers)
and finally
Stamp With Fun - Punches
Now that was a long list and now you get to see the card.....

Please meet Lola Rose, she is a fantastic digital image that I got at Pink Petticoat and I just love her! I paper pieced her dress which is so easy with digital stamps, you simply flip the original image and print on the back of your dp and cut it out, perfect and no lines! I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the back mat and embossed it with a Quickutz folder (BTW I spotted them on sale at Remember When and they work just the same as Cuttlebug). The cardstock is Coredinations and after embossing I sanded it lightly for the white core to show through. The dp is Dovecraft courtesy of the wonderful blog candy I won from Suzanne at Scrap Bitz. The pearls are Martha Stewart Wedding and the gems from the $1 spot at Michaels.

The inside is just more dp from the same collection and a little more ribbon to coordinate with the front.

I just thought she was so cute and wanted to give you another look.
I colored her skin and hair with Copic's and added Diamond Stickles to her dress, bag and shoes.

I hope you like her and have a great rest of your day!
