 I had lots of fun creating this card with Christmas Lantern Marci.  I paper pieced her using pp by Basic Grey.  I always struggle when I have to use lace on a card so I decided to create a layered lace dress for Marci.
Here are the various components before I coloured the card with copics and then paper pieced her ensemble.

Baby Boy

Supplies:  Sweet Pea Levi Baby Digi - By Lori Boyd, 
Lime Twist pp and sentiment sticker - My Mind's Eye,  
buttons - Basic Grey, copics, tombow roller adhesive and copics.

Not very happy with how this photographed - hard to believe that I took this photo in daylight!!!  It's only September and already the quality of light on this side of the world isn't wonderful.  The background paper is a dark blue but looks grey in this photo.

Used "Sweet Pea Levi" fun baby image By Lori Designs - I cut it using my guillotine to resemble an old polaroid.  I coloured and added a sticker from the Lime Twist collection by My Minds Eye.

Added the buttons with glossy accents so they are "cemented" to the card.

Fancy Folds

Supplies:  OA Buddies Stamp - Greeting Farm, grey and red 
cardstock - Canson, birthday sentiment - Waltzingmouse Stamps, 
glittered alphas - American Thickers, button - Basic Grey, 
machine stitching, Tombow roller adhesive, glossy accents, 
Notebook punch - Fiskars, notepage die - PTI, copics, 
black tuexedo ink - Memento, pop dots and Scor-pal.

This week's Challenge on Paperplay is "Fancy Folds".   We are very kindly sponsored by Whiff of Joy this week.  Check out the other DT creations right here.

This was a difficult one to make because I made the front before I decided to turn it into an easel card!!!  I know, completely backwards!
I then did lots of measuring and playing with grey cardstock until I was happy with how it stood.  I used a Basic Grey button (which I threaded) and adhered to the cardstock with glossy accents.

I matted the coloured image to grey cardstock and layered it using pop dots for added dimension.
