Isn't she a doll?

 This card was so much fun to make!  This sweet new Scrolls Work image Rachel reminds me of one of my childhood dolls.  I found myself dressing her up, just like I dressed my dolls.  I guess that's why she just had to have the fur trim on her hat and coat.  She has so much detail I barely had to color much, she already had the beautiful shading.  I stamped her with Memento Rich Cocoa also available at Scrolls Work and colored her in with a red Bic marker.  The beautiful Gothic Arched banner was a freebie from Altered Artifacts.  The paper is Websters Home for the Holidays printable.  I chopped up a feather to get the fur effect and I cut the leaves out of a duplicate sheet to give it a more dimensional look.  Rachel has some dimensionals under her to make her stand out, as if she doesn't do that all on her own.  I hope you like her, because I think she needs to be seen in her navy blue coat also, lol.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
