The Baby Doll

     Today starts the first challenge at the new Emerald City Crafts blog and I'm happy to be part of the team.  :-D   The rules are so simple:  1. Anything Goes all the time.  2. Challenges post on the first Friday of each month and run for 3 weeks.  3. The last week the team chooses a winner and Top 3 and those are posted with the new challenge.

     If you love vintage ephemera, you're going to love this new blog and shop!  Let me show you an example.


     The image is from the "Nostalgia" collection and I simply adore the little girl hugging her favorite baby doll.  No coloring on this one but lots of wonderful, feminine embellies like the lace and cream-colored ribbon, the sparkly ribbon at the side of the image, and the pearls.  The roses and bow (dyed with ProMarker) were in my stash, just waiting for this card so that they could be used.

     Challenges:
Aloha Friday
Aud Sentiments
A Vintage Journey
Fab'nFunky
Outlawz Twisted Thurs.
Paper Shelter
Southern Girls
Word Art Weds.

     I hope you'll come and join in this month.  Remember, you have until July 28 to make something and get it entered.  We'll be looking for you.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
