Queen of Hearts Ellie

I am a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland and just seem to keep buying various digis of Alice, The Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts. This Queen of Hearts is from The Paper Nest Dolls and I love her. She's a sweet looking Queen, not the nasty, vicious Queen from the book.

This card is for The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge #17, which is always an anything goes challenge and for Sketch and Stash's Challenge #145 to use the sketch below. My old stash is the ribbon which has been retired from SU from years now and my new stuff is my fairly new digi, but never before used, digi. I did have to leave off the embellishments in the top left corner as my sentiment was there and didn't really look right anywhere else though.


And here she is...isn't she just the cutest? I'm really getting the hang of flicking with black hair now thanks to Alyce Keegan's classes, but I must make a start on the clothing one soon so I can get my pleats right.
