You Make Me... Smile!

Hi everyone! 

Today, I am sharing a gift I made for my friend, Mary's, daughter, Rebekah.  Her birthday was only almost 2 months ago.  Better late than never? 

I started out with a 12 X 12 hanging door sign.  What little girl doesn't like their name plastered on everything?  The base is a piece of heavyweight chipboard and covered it with patterned paper using red line tape.  I used a die-cut piece of patterned paper from MME and stitched around the perimeter.  The "Emma" from Meet Emma & Wyatt, was stamped, colored and cut out.  I pieced on her clothes (and thought of paper dolls as I was doing it).  The patterned paper already had gorgeous flowers on it, so I left well enough alone and added some glittered garnishes to the centers.  I made the rolled flowers using my Sizzix die (LOVE it).  I strung some ribbon through jumbo pewter eyelets and decoratively cut the ends of the ribbon. 

I hope Rebekah enjoys it... as soon as I mail it.   *slaps self on hand*

I made a card that coordinates with it as well.  I used the same stamp set and the new Cloud Trio Die-namics.  LOVE that die. :)  I added a tiny Prima to her hair over the flower image.  The clouds are mounted on red line dimensionals.
