What a doll!

Today I am using my Cheery Lynn Dies along with some fabulous stamps and embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powders by the lovely Suzy West.
I cam across this adorable bookmark on Etsy:


I always look at things and think..ooh, I could do that even though I do not have the exact supplies the original was made out of.  With all my Cheery Lynn Designs dies, I knew I would be able to make my own version of this Japanese Kokeshi doll.
Here is my version...


Mine is much bigger and I have turned it into a plaque rather than a bookmark.


For the doll and clothing I used Scalloped Circle Stackers and Scalloped Oval Stackers.


I enhanced the dies and patterned paper with the Wow Embossing Powders and Stamps.


The flower and lace embellishments are made with Queen Anne's Lace, Buttons1 and the MediumMiniature Roses


The final touch was applying the sweet sentiment attached to an individual Pennant.


I just love how this cute little doll turned out and I hope you do also.
