Here's what I created.  I did a Shadow Box Card measuring 5 x 7.  This was my first time inking up Dee Dee and I was thrilled at how she turned out!  The idea to suspend Dee Dee came from the Tent Card.  I just thought it would be kind of neat to use 2 different size Blossom nesties to help suspend Dee Dee.  The flowers were cut using the Dahlia nestability -- thanks Kim for the idea!  :)  And of course, I've distressed EVERYTHING with Tim Holtz Distress Ink!   


Here's the top view . . .


And there's Dee Dee up close . . . I hope you can see all her teeny  tiny curls in her hair!


So, there we go!  Aren't you pumped up?  Get started and let's see what you create!  Don't forget to check out all the other Creative Team members cards!  Have a great weekend!
