The Little Misses were given a free rein this week to showcase whatever we fancied colouring up...

This is Jasmine, she's a Sugar 'n Spice Doll available in rubber from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

By the way, she has a sister (a digi) named Coriander, whom you can grab for free at the moment along with a few other challenge freebies that Barbara is kindly offering to those of you who would like to snag one for your collection.
You can find them HERE.

For my card, I started by deciding I wanted to use this spotty paper from MME's Stella & Rose 'Gertie' pad, knowing that i'd also like to use kraft cardstock and gold shimmer paper with it.
So I started colouring Jasmine. Now, in my head, I wanted her to have a red dress and a brown bear, but my hands decided the opposite to that! and i'd started to colour the bear red before realising what i'd done. lol. Looks ok though eh?
The layout for my card was inspired by Sam's sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, but I haven't followed it close enough to join in their challenge, I just wanted to give recognition to where I saw it first.
'Thank You' is from a selection of All Night Media stamps bought for me by my Daughter. I cut it out using one of my cArt-Us frame dies.
The lacy edge strips were made using one of my new Marianne dies on gold shimmer paper.
