Sherri Baldy's My Besties Paper Doll Dresser Card

Some time ago, i saved this cute dresser card (step card) with an adorable image of a little girl and i've wanted to make this card ever since i saw it.

Since that time i have come across another adorable Paper doll image from Sherri Baldy and thought, "oh, how perfect this would be"!  To find the paper doll image click here.

Now here's the deal.. i didn't print off the extra clothing..in fact for some reason i didn't even down load it to my computer..and found out about the extra clothing AFTER i made the this card.  LOL.  Now i can make another one with different clothing.

Here is what i created:
Here is a side view:

Have you ever made a side step card before?  This one is fairly easy..and you can make two bases out of one 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.  Here are the instructions i used to make this one.

Now to make it my "own", i found a great Memory Box die called Victorian Frame set #98535 to make into the mirror and i used foil for the mirror part.  I also added some Wild Orchid flowers, hand strung some pearl beads onto wire for a necklace..added embellishments i had cut out and saved in my stash (butterflies/paper flowers).
