If you look closely, you will notice that all of these dolls outfits have a color that matches one of the colors of the background. It wasn't intentional at first, but when I noticed I picked the rest of the dolls according to their outfits.  See how Rosie's romper has some green that matches the background? Later on, I used my Sea Glass background with a fuchsia piece that I made o
