The new challenge at Double D's is named "Kentucky Derby Hat." I found a wonderful digi in my collection from Create with TLC. It's a freebie and you can find it HERE. I printed the image onto white cardstock and added a little color on her face, cheeks, lips and hat with Spectrum Noir markers. I then used a fine-line black Sharpie to add dark curly hair around her face and a white gel pen to add highlights on her eyes, lips and lacy color. To add some color and texture, plus some realism, I cut a few slits into the hat brim and lacy collar, then pulled a few scraps of tulle through them, fluffing it gently and taping it down on the backside. A small pink bow and ribbon tucked in among the loops of tulle. Found a pretty square doily in my stash [is actually a piece of a plastic tablecloth that I bought at a hardware store a few years ago. Yes… you read that correctly. A hardware store.] Discovered that double-stick doesn't stick to plastic doily squares, so ended up stapling the image to the doily squares with a few colored staples. The sentiment on the front of the card is a freebie from Desert Diva. You can find it HERE. The inside sentiment is from a Beccy's Place digi set named "True Beauty." I'm entering this card into several other challenges including If You Give a Crafter a Cookie since the card contains pretty pink and some lacy edging.

The cute cup image is a digi from Verve Stamps that I purchased during the 2017 Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop. And Verve the sentiment is from a Crafting Desert Diva set named Coffee Hero. I used lots of scraps of patterned paper, plus a bit of vellum to make the swirls of steam.
