Have a Totally Fun Birthday

I just love this little girl (Willameana) image from TOTALLY STAMPALICIOUS. I combined today's colour challenge from Splitcoast Stampers CC249 (Mambo Mellon (regal rose), Mellow Moss, So Saffron and Nuetrals of Choice) - Plus the desert option was to use Polka Dots (big dots, itty bitty dots or any dots inbetween). I was thrilled when Betty Wright asked me to make a Sample for today's challenge - Thanks Betty.
For this weeks challenge over at Totally Stampalicious Blog- use Buttons. I used an teeny tiny triangle button for the zipper pull on her PJ's. I just love her expression - she reminds me so much of one of my Grand daughters :)
I stamped the image four times. Base image, on the pink and green dp, on the Mambo Mellon dp and once again on Bristol Vellum (for her head). Water coloured her skin - the rest I coloured with Prisma Colour pencil crayons and gamsol. Paper pieced her pj's, hair band, collar and zipper. Sewed on the button. Popped up her head just a little bit - for more dimension. Stamped her teddy bear on So saffron, colour paws, tummy, patch and face. Cut out the circles with Nestabilities. I love the big bold polka dotted dp. Added stitckles to the outside of the big circles, her head band, Teddy bear patches and candle flames. Sewed edges of base card and large circle. Pierced holes in smaller circle and used white gel pen - faux stitched. Dotted scallops on large circle to match the DP. Willamena and candle panel are popped up.

Thanks for stopping in.
Happy Creating,

Hugs - Patricia
