Pearls, lace and seeing double

I haven't been feeling too well over the last few weeks.  It's only been the last two days I felt up to doing anything creative.  So, here goes.
Ruby from Dilly Beans colored with Prismacolor markers
Cupcake and Berry bow stamps by Sanrio
For this challenge, we had to use the same image twice.  Here, I used Dilly Bean's Ruby; I love this image because she's cute yet creepy.  Those vacant button eyes just staring.  I decided to do a Sugar and Spice theme.  And even though they are total opposites, they are still twins; so I "sewed" them together.  I'm also to going to submit this for the Fashionista challenge over at Art with No Boundaries
I used foam dots to add dimension
Isn't she so sweet?  She's the epitome of spring.  I made a chunky page for this challenge.  I colored her with Prismacolor markers and added a flower to her hair.  I tried to make a lace bow (first time ever) and I think it's an epic fail; we'll try again some other time.  I also printed a lace pattern and added some pearl accents.
That's it for now.  Gotta go and rest up.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
Peace and love,
Mary xoxo
