Paper Sweeties January Inspiration Challenge #15!

Happy New Year!!! 

My new year is getting off to a wonderful start today. You see this is my first post as an official member of the Paper Sweeties Design Team!!! I am looking forward to sharing Debbie's stamp designs with you this year. I hope I can inspire you to visit the PS store for shopping trips, hop along with us on blog hops and play along with our challenges! 


Just look at this adorable inspiration photo kicking off our challenges for 2014



I was completely inspired by this tiny tot in her sweet little outfit and set out to recreate her on my card. The colors fell into place easily once I got going!



I've outfitted Abigail in a felt skirt topped with a billowy tulle tutu that's adorned with two puffy pompoms. She has a stitched ribbon scarf and a sweet little trinket in her hair. Once she was outfitted I created an alphabet embossed panel topped with a strip of Webster Pages alphabet paper and one of kraft polka dot embossed paper. This panel was adhered to a white card base. My tiny tot was added with foam pop dots. I wanted to use a small sentiment to let little Abigail take center stage. So I did a bit of selective inking on one from The Splendor of Autumn set. 

I hope you take some time to hop along with us to see what the rest of the team has in store for you. Have a great day and thanks for visiting! ~Lisa
