Today's card uses one of my favourite techniques - paper piecing. Many people are surprised about this because I don't do stamping - all my cards are made with digis which I find more versatile.
This particular image from the Digistamp Boutique (my mother ship!) is a very well used digi - it's wonderful for girly birthday cards...
I've used some hounds tooth check patterned paper I've had for more years than I care to remember for both the backing and the paper-pieced frock. The rest of her is coloured with pro markers and I've added some clear gems as 'diamond earrings'. Simple but effective.
If anyone is interested I paper-piece the image by printing it onto some cheap copier paper first then stick patterned paper over the image and print again. Then it's just a matter of carefully cutting out the pieces you want to use.
I've entered this into the challenges at:
