"Dreams Do Come True!" My first Design Team card for the Paper Nest Dolls!!! (Just a little excited)

Hi Friends,

Today I am sharing with you my very first DT card as part of the Paper Nest Doll's Design Team. When I began coloring stamps I fell in love with PND's because of the Artist and her husband. They work as a team and put their heart and soul's into their stamp business. This reminded me much of Randy and myself building and working our AVON business together. It is amazing when you can work side by side the one you love. Once you look at the Paper Nest Doll's  stamps you will also want to become part of the MAGIC.

This weeks challenge over at PND's Challenge blog is "Anything Goes" For my card I have used one of the new release rubber stamps named "Princess Ellie" She is 3.75" tall and is available on the website. Click HERE to order her or shop the entire Paper Nest Dolls Online Store.

My card is  6"x6" and is titled "Dreams Do Come True" because when I met Christine about a year ago I knew I wanted to practice until I was good enough to be a part of her Paper Nest Doll's team. With many hours of practice and hard work I have MADE IT!

Supplies Used:

Paper Nest Doll's "Princess Ellie" Stamp
Jaded Blossom Sentiment Stamp from "100% Princess" Stamp Set
Recollections Designer Paper
Flowers and brads from my stash
Spellbinders Dies
Copic Markers:
Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - E23, E25, E27
Other - RV11, Rv13, RV 14, RV17, Y15, Y17
