Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card


Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.
