Tie a Yellow Ribbon at Passion for Promarkers

Yayy - it's my turn to set the theme at PFP this week and I've chosen Tie a Yellow Ribbon!!  I don't use a lot of yellow in my cards but when we were picking themes, this song was running through my head for some reason!!  So thought it might be a good theme - any colour, any style as long as your card has a yellow ribbon on it and you use your Promarkers or Aquamarkers. 
This wasn't the card I had in mind to make actually but I just LOVE this new paper doll, Trudy, from Mo Manning - and she offered it as a freebie through her Facebook or Papercraft Planet groups!!  I also couldn't resist two new retro sets of papers - Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon and Emma's Shoppe from Crate Paper - they are just divine and they go fabulously with this Mo image.  As you can see I paperpieced her dress by printing it out onto three different papers - it's actually a little big but I quite like the look as that's how I remember my paper dolls looking!!

And I know this is very embarrassing for poor Trudy but just had to show you a peek under her skirt as she has the cutest little underwear set on!  (I should have taken a piccie of her before I dressed her.)

I hung the two spare dresses over the mini hanger  and added this cute little die cut dress up image from the Crate Paper set!!  I have the required yellow ribbon in the corner and also the patterned ribbon at the back is recycled from some chocolate packaging!

Do hope you like my challenge and that you will be able to join in!  I shall be round to visit and ooh and ahh!!  As always we have a great prize from a fab sponsor, and this week it's Joanna Sheen who's offering a £10 voucher to spend in her on-line store!

My fab teamies at Passion for Promarkers have done me proud with their cards so hope you manage to hop over there for a looksee!!
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Stamps&Fun=Creativity - Red and Yellow
StampsRUs-There was a little Girl

While posting, I thought I'd show you another Mo Manning image, Two Jill, one of my all time favourites which can be found here!

This was a just because I felt like colouring make!!!
Managed to get round to a few blogs last night, so many awesome makes, so little time!!!

Oh they're both gorgeous Julie. Fab images and beautiful colouring, love the papers you've used. Fancy showing Trudy's undies to the world though, poor girl!

Your comments made me laugh :o) I thought I'd be struggling more because I was really bad with paper - couldn't go in a craft shop (real or online) without buying at least one paper pack! I know I couldn't do it with stamps though, too many new ones that I NEED! Lisa x
