Paper doll from Mo's Digital Pencil

The wonderful Mo at Mo's Digital Pencil has offered her Facebook fans this adorable paper doll "Trudy" to play with. I decided to have a bit of fun with this image. I paper-pieced the dress from 2 different Basic Grey papers and then adhered it to a sheet of acetate which was then placed over an opening in the card front. I decorated the card front with a rub-on and small flower embellishments (fussy-cut from the patterned paper at the bottom) along with a frame cut using two sizes of a Spellbinders nestability.

Inside the card, I placed the coloured (and paper-pieced) Trudy paper doll. I love how she looks dressed for the party when the card is closed but is so adorably under-dressed in reality. The underwear are paper-pieced from another scrap of Basic Grey patterned paper. The image is coloured with Copic markers.
