A Doll From the Last Century

Continuing our heritage theme for the month of March, today's Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge is GC143: Last Century. 

I fussy cut this adorable doll from the Hello Dollie Green image sheet found at www.RetroCafeArt.com, this month's sponsor.

It's the little details in art that make me happy.  My favorite color combo--turquoise  and black.  Finding the perfectly matching patterned paper in my stash.  The left wing fits perfectly in the crook of the design while the right wing overlaps perfectly into the turquoise for a pop of dimension.  The patterned paper required no additional work.  The white doll really stands out against the black paper.  Simple is good. 
   
Be sure to visit Gingersnap Creations for inspiration from more of the design team, the challenge rules, and info on the fabulous RetroCafeArt prize. 


You have until April 15 to link up your creation.  As Gingersnap Creations comes to a close, don't forget that YOU are the one voting for the Ginger Gems.
