I absolutely am IN LOVE with this Pretty Hat Anya. She is old school glam with a trendy twist. And although she also looks like a child playing dress up, she demonstrates sophistication at the same time!

I also wanted to try out paper piercing on her. Being new to the stamping world, I get so many good ideas from the inspiring blogs I follow. Anyway, I love how her hat turned out! & I also wanted to do her dress but had limited time (btw, the babe is three months today :)).

I picked 7 gypsies PP..I just adore this pattern of vintage-y, French-like, damask inspired paper & ribbon. Truly, to me it created an amazing backdrop to this fashionista! Brads are from Basic Grey. And the other PP is from Traci Bautista-- for those of you who don't know Traci's line: it's simply wonderful. They're based on painted paper, each one is slightly different. She's a genius!

Anyway, have a great day! Sorry for the short posts...someone's going through a growth spurt and requiring more frequent feeds and shorter naps! I'm lucky to be able to make cards.
