The Polkadot Door Inspiration Challenge {5} !

A more perfect display of storybook imagination there could not be! The mere sight of these tiny tots in their playful costumes amidst this whimsical dreamland set my head into a tailspin. I studied this photo over and over deciding how to capture this wee bit of pure delight. The ladies at Polkadot Door Designs have given us something so special this month!!!



This was my vision, my own bit of whimsy to share with you. I utilized the colors and patterns in the photo and the soft puffy clouds. I stitched together PTI felt and some shimmery vellum to create mine.  The little girl is from Ann-ticipations, the little boy is 100 Proof Press and the tricycle is Unity.  I crafted the tiny gnome hats from red felt. The DPs are Cosmo Cricket & My Minds Eye. I  hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks for visiting...I appreciate it!!!  Be sure to stop by the Polkadot Door Designs blog to check out the lovely work by the design team! ~Lisa

Edited October 19, 2011...I'm delighted to have been chosen the October Inspiration challenge winner at the Polkadot Door for this card!!!

Totally adorable! Your card is a 'real' take on the inspiration and it is just gorgeous! I'm a big fan of felt and have 'felt the pull' back to it recently... so many ideas, so little time.
