Sweet New Girl from the Sunshine Set from Elphine House Australia

I may be a little ahead of myself, but Elphine House Australia has a couple of new cuties coming out from the Sunshine Set and I just can't help myself!  I had to use one of them!  So while I don't have a specific name for you, I'm giving you a preview of this cute pie!

Our challenge today over at Elphine House Australia Design Team has a theme of "Lace and Pearls".  If you know me, you know I love me some pearls and lace is right up there with one of my favorite embellishments!  Well, I decided to give this beauty a twist and used Baker's Twine as well my lace, but I hung tight with the pearls!

Isn't she a beauty?  I love yellow and orange together and thought pearls were so appropriate for her!  She's colored with copics and has some stickles in her hair, n her top, pants and I added some Diamond Glaze to the apples.  The paper is a beautiful pack from My Mind's Eye and the flowers and pearls are from Recollections.  She's cut out with my Floral Oval die from Spellbinders and the Baker's twine is from The Twinery.  I ran the layered paper through my BigShot (my poor cuttlebug finally died on me :(), and used my dotted swiss folder to add some texture to the panels.  I also used some Scattered Straw around the frame.  This layout is from The House That Stamps Built and I love it!  I'll use it pretty often.

Love, simply adore her face!  I think she looks so pretty and self-reliant, out there picking not only some apples, but some flowers to go with it!

I like the clean look of the inside.  And I love that Baker's Twine!

I am planning on entering her in the following challenges:
