Playing with Dolls

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I'm back from a lovely time with my family celebrating Christmas and have been enjoying my time off work just relaxing, hanging out with my kids and a little bit of card making too!

We have a new sketch today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and it's terrific!  I sure hope you join in the fun this week and give this sketch a try - a fun way to start the New Year!

This sketch is perfect for larger images - it puts them center stage so to speak!

Our sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies and Tammy, the owner and illustrator has the most beautiful images that are always a pleasure to create with.  A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. 

The Grand Prize winner of our sketch challenge this week will receive a $12 gift certificate to the ADFD shop! 

I chose this beautiful image called "Dolls - Margaret Evans Price Style" for its vintage feel. I love vintage style and it was so fun to create with this beautiful image. Edges of my card were distressed with inks and a distressing tool. The image was colored with Copics and a fabric flower, glass flower, lace and rhinestones embellish the card. The papers are "Head over Heels" by Lily Bee Design.

A Day For Daisies images are some of my favorites of all the digi collections out there. I think it's a favorite of our Sweet Sketch Wednesday design divas too because their creations this week are outstanding. Get inspired by taking a peak at them at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and then join us in the challenge this week!  Hope to see your creations in the gallery!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamp and Create - December Monthly Challenge - Vintage
I Brake For Challenges - IBFCC15 - Vintage

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon this card brings back childhood memories, I loved playing with my dolls when I was young and I still have them shame I had two boys. This is such a lovely image and such warm colours very pretty. Take care.
