Finally, feel the mojo returning :-)

Hi everyone.  How did your weekend go?

Mine was quiet, yet very productive - in between doing the chores yesterday I hit the craft room and played with my Silhouette Cameo.  Also have been playing with the new release from Polkadoodles - Dollie Daydream Goes East.  This collection is also available for download too :-) I will have several of these DL cards (8" by 3") to share with you this week, I am making a set of four.

I also played with a little origami and made the lotus flowers from papers off the CD too :-)  They are big enough that you fit a tea-light in the centre.

The image is one of 12 (yes 12!) Dollie Daydreams and I managed to faux paper piece her, before colouring her with my pencils.

All the elements (except the black) are from the CD, the papers, the fans, the bamboo, the sentiments - all in this amazing collection.

The fans were scored along the pattern lines and folded and then a little pearl dot added.  The Dollie is up on pop dots to add some depth to the card.

So, that's number 1 of four completed.  Am so pleased with how this came out.  I have to thank Leeann over at Paper Doll's Creations for her fabulous tutorial on faux paper piecing with the Silhouette Design Studio.

For the inside, I used the same papers as the front and then added one of the scrolls from the CD too!

And there you are - just another glimpse with the lotus flowers :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
