Beccy's Place Digital Designs by Beccy Muir
My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the later 1990's and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing. There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too. I still dabble in each of those crafts (and many others) from time to time but I generally gravitate toward paper, which I find versatile and forgivinging.

I started "doodling" little designs for cards back in 2009, which is when I started  my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies. From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects. Some of my images have now been made into rubber stamps by the wonderful http://www.beccysplace.blogspot.com/ at Sparkle N Sprinkle. These days you can usually find me "hanging out over on my blog, www.beccysplace.blogspot.com

For my project, I fell in love with Beccy's Place, Rag Doll with Love, and just knew I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card for Lily. But the question, was how to make her "stylish and elegant". After a few choice words and several creative chats with Miss Kimberly Pate, we came up with as being Lily (who is 4 years old) loves glitter and of course is very stylish - what 4 year old doesn't love glitter and is stylish along with some bling - really now?? I had the Stickle Fairy come work her magic on my card along with pearls down the front of her dress and a button flower for her hat - rag doll "be styling"!!!!

  • size A2 card with Recollections pink cardstock with scraps for the background where the hearts on the crown paper had Stickles added
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Border punch with scraps added to the side - now, isn't that just stylish?
  • Ragdoll was colored using Copic R20, Prisma Colored Pencils, Whispers Markers, gel pen and Stickles accents 
  • Queen & Co. white pearls added as the buttons on front of dress
  • button from my stash adorns her hat and of course more Stickles was added to the center
  • JoLee heart sticker on the bottom right corner
  • Darice & Co. Conversation Heart Puff Sticker
  • sentiment, "I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck" had been from Create with TLC January/February 2015 Club was chalked around the edges mounted a Valentine paper scrap
