Ms. Snow Flake

Still feeling kind of wintry (hard not to with temps in the teens and a foot of snow) so I thought the snowflake themed ATC-paperdoll swap in my Fantastic Flat Paper Dolls yahoo group was a perfect pick.I used Paper Whimsy images to construct Ms. Flake's head, skirt and feet.
Her trunk is made of layered snowflake and paper flower embellishments topped with a pearl center. I gave her mini snowflake garland arms and dresden angel wings. She wears a sheer snowflake ribbon and jeweled snowflake embellishment in her hair. She's articulated, using brads, so she can fold onto the standard size atc on which she's mounted. A few touches of glimmer and sparkle-and this girl is ready to travel.
Our swap partners will be assigned tomorrow so I don't know where she's going, but I can't wait to see who I get in return. I'll be sure to share when she arrives.

I'm making a quick stop to tell you I have left an award for you on my blog. If you don't like awards, as I know some people don't, I really just want you to know you are one of the people who have been a huge inspiration to me and I greatly appreciate that. Have a great weekend!
