Paper Doll Card

My 6-year old daughter was being super sweet tonight, and borrowing my stamping supplies to make me a card for Mother's Day with her daddy. She kept giving me hugs and she was so excited. I've been wanting to make her some paper dolls, so I made her this to thank her for being sweet. Maybe I will give it to her on Mother's Day. I'm entering this into the "for mother" challenge at Pile it On, although it is from her mother, not for my mother. I hope it counts (I already made my mother and my mother-in-law something). So these are the challenges I'm entering:

Dynamic Duos
Sweet Sunday Sketch
Sentimental Sundays - paper piecing
Opus-Gluei - bouquet
Pile it On - Mother's Day
Pink Elephant - Mother's Day

I made the floral background paper using first and second generation stamping. I colored my doll using CTMH markers, and I paper pieced her clothes using Tommy and Wonderland. She is stuck on the front using one of our velcro dots:

On the inside, I made a lemonade stand using kraft paper and stamps from the paper doll set. I only adhered the stand on three sides, so that I could use it as a pocket for her clothes. I left some room on the side to put the doll so Leah can play with her there:

Here is a close-up on the sentiment:

This is a good lesson for my daughter to learn.

Here is how I colored and cut out all the outfits:

I really hope she enjoys this set and doesn't ruin it too quickly!
