 I have a little Paper Nest Dolls inspiration for you today.

This sweet little thing is called Emma with Balloon (Striped) - because she's also available with plain socks.

I have coloured the image with markers and used a wonky stitches die by Creative Dies to cut the shape around her, allowing her balloon to extend beyond the edges of the shape.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Tea Time paper pack.  I've used one of my oldest Martha Stewart punches for the heart borders.

The bunting in the top corner is Jenni B, and I've used hemp cord to tie it off - making the smallest bows I think I've ever made!

Emma's gift is a dimensional sticker I've had in my stash for years, and my flowers were all from my stash.  A finishing touch was a few pearls.

I love working with digital images, but if rubber stamps are your thing, you can find sweet Emma in rubber here.
we have loads of Paper Nest Dolls inspiration in our Facebook group, so join us there to see more!

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!
