A new PIA card!!

Hey everyone, this is Donna. I’m posting one of my favorite types of card today. I absolutely love the stamp collection by Stampavie and will definitely be using more of their stamps in the future! 
This is a 4 ¼" X 5 ½" card made with white cardstock.  I used the lavender cardstock with a nice pearl sheen in the Daisy and Swirl embossing folder to give it a fabulous background. The purple patterned paper and “Pia” are cut out using the Spellbinders Small Deckled Rectangles to give the paper a tattered looking edge. 
Pia and her cute little doll were colored using Prisma colored pencils. I used purple as the main color and added a little pink as an accent. At the bottom of the card I used lace with bows and made a military chain out of small purple ribbon to finish off the edge of the lace. The striped ribbon was tied using the Bow Easy bowmaker (my favorite since I can never seem to tie a good looking bow!).  
The olive green pearls give the card a nice finishing touch and a good pop of color. Thanks for checking out my card and I hope this inspires you to create something unique of your own. This is the first one I’ve made to post and it was such fun! I look forward to sharing many more of my cards and ideas with you.  

Thanks, Donna!!!   You may recognize some of the same supplies I used in the Pia card posted here.   Donna and I were given the same basic supplies to create a challenge card.   It's always fun to see how differently the cards turn out even with the same supplies!
