Babushka Dolls

Happy Saturday, and welcome to another Diva Sketch Challenge, DSC159. If you are interested in seeing who is participating in the challenge this week, you can find the list of names over at the Utah Diva Blog. This is the last week of sketches by Elizabeth, and I have really enjoyed her sketches! Here is sketch number 159. If you stopped by last Saturday, you know I jumped the gun and did DSC160 last week. Yikes! So I hope you are not totally confused. This week's sketch is DSC160, but because I did that a week early, I am using the sketch from last Saturday.

Earlier this week I was blog surfing and I came across the most adorable Babushka dolls, created by Deb Fearns. I fell in love with them, and I couldn't wait to make one. Here is a sneak peak at the inside of my card

Deb had the punches listed on her blog. The dolls required the Owl Builder punch, the extra large oval punch, and the 1" circle punch. Isn't this just the cutest?! On my card I stamped "friend to friend,"so I thought it was quite appropriate to have one little friend on the front of the card as well as one on the inside. What do you think? There isn't any stamping on the card other than the greeting. The doll's eyes and cheeks are both from the owl punch, as well as the bow at her neck, which is two hearts. For her lips I used the tiny heart from the pinking hearts border.

Recipe follows
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Cheerful Treat DSP, Concord Crush, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Concord Crush
Punches: Owl builder, Extra-Large Oval, 1" circle

I can hardly believe we are at the end of October, and we are expecting some snow later today. We didn't have a great fall this year. There was not much color, and we still have lots of trees loaded with leaves. This could potentially be a very bad storm. Maybe we'll be lucky and we won't get much.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a delightful weekend!
