Girl playing dress up

Over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday this week's optional twist is to "use a doily".  I've used an image from Stitchy Bear Designs - our Sponsor for February. 

I colored the image using Promarkers and a white gel pen. I used several scrap pieces of DP, some of them came free with magazines, and I mounted them onto panels of silver paper.
The design idea was to a make scene with the girl standing in front of the big mirror, checking out how she looks after rummaging through her mother's closet. Silver mirri card actually works very well as mirror, so well in fact I had to put a paper between me and my camera to avoid having my reflection caught in the mirror!
The dresses are cut out with a die from Memory Bow, and the dresser with a Spellbinders die. The sentiment is heat embossed with silver EP.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Cutie Pie Challenge - Doilies + Cute
2) Digi Sketch Challenge - Any Sketch + For the Girls (T)
3) Incy Wincy Designs - Punch or Die Cut

Beautiful card, so feminine and elegant, Pia! Love the sweet pink paper layer in the back of the scene and the doily, they give a delicate touch to all! The scene is perfectly represented, the mirror looks great and the dress with the dresser are adorable. Love the silver pearls in the edges, too!
P.S. Thanks for all your lovely comments in my blog!!

That is an awesome look for your 'mirror'. What a perfect way to use the dress die & that sewing mannequin. The little girl is darling, and loved the delicate white doily. Inspired use of your free papers too. Just a delightful card & such a sweet scene. I hope some special little girl is going to be the recipient of this one! TFS & Hugs

Your card is just adorable I just love the little girlie things that you have on it, the doily in the background looks really nice. I remember a time you never did anything very early on was mostly all boy stuff but I really like this this is just darling. Hope everything is going to good on your trips.
