Ooooh I love using kraft cardstock!

# Design Dollies ~ Colour challenge ~ kraft, white, fuschia
# Design Dollies ~ Elements challenge ~ recipe
1> lace ~ lace trim and paper lace doiley
2> stripes ~ stripey ribbon
3> pink ~ pink shoes, pink ribbons
4> crown ~ I made my own with cardstock and pearls
