Dancing Paper Doll

My daughter did her first solo this year in Dance. It was a Ballet to the Can Can. So for her "Good Luck Gift", I made her a Paper Doll of herself!

I used the Dress Up Paper Doll cartridge then did the fit of page for the black out body. Used my largest Peachy Keen Stamp. Then added the black dress cut for the 11 1/2 doll body then cut a pink, yellow and blue dress at 12 inches and cut the top off of the yellow and blue. I left the whole pink dress in tact so the ruffles of the sleeves would show and cut the black dress sleeves off.
I then cut another blackout body in black and cut the arms off to make her gloves ~ couldn't find any that would work otherwise. Then added the bracelet and a ribbon with Stickles for her choker. Also hand cut the pink inset and "laced" ribbon just like her costume. Of course she needed a garter too!
For the hair I did the bow then a flower from Plantin Schoolbook cut at 1 and 1 1/2 and inked and layered. I cuttlebugged the hair with Divine swirls. Her name was done in Gypsy font and transfered from the Gypsy.

Came out pretty cute if you ask me and at 12:30 am, not bad!!!

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
