Paper Sweeties October Challenge

Can you believe it's October?  Time for a new monthly challenge at Paper Sweeties.  In the past we've had all sketch designs. This month Debbie thought we'd try something new - a gorgeous photo inspiration.  Look at this little sweetie all dressed up in orange tulle.   I tried to recreate Emma to look a bit like the cutie in picture.  I mixed a few sets together to get all the pieces right - the sentiment, socks, shoes, and hat are from "Best Witches" and the pretty party dress is from "It's Tea Time".  To mimic the pretty organza dress I took a 1 1/2" wide wired organza ribbon and pulled the wire ends together from one side to scrunch up the ribbon into ruffles.  I topped the "waist line" with a bitty paper rose the color of the sunflower in the photo.  
 
If you need a bit more inspiration there is plenty to be found from the Design Team.   Hop on over and see what "little pretty" they made!

Thanks for having a peek and have a great day!
