Wiff Of Joy DT Call

Hey everyone!!! So I decided to go ahead and go for it.. I am entering the Wiff Of Joy DT call.. If nothing else it gives me an excuse to play with my WOJ stamps..:) and this one if one of those stamps you just LOVE to color..

Here are some fun details about my card. I used 5 different patterned papers, colored my main image using Copic markers. I ended up dry embossing the black polka dot paper and sanding on top of it to give it a more distressed look. Of course I inked the edges of all my papers, and stitched down all my patterned papers. Then I created 3 lolly pop flowers, and added a little gem to the middle of them. I also pop dotted the image off the page, and double pop dotted the lolly pop flowers.

I don't know if you can really see it here.. but on the dots of her hairband, pants, the cookies, and the monster (which I drew on the book) I used diamond glaze to give it some texture..
This was the first time I have ever made one of these fun stand up cards.. and I have a SECRET to share with you all. :) You don't have to decorate the top(of the base) of the card IF you sew your edges down.. because the stitching acts like an element and holds in place.. as you can see in my photo..all my fun elements and embellishments are at the bottom of the card..Not the top :)
The quote says"Most of the shadows in this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine."-Ralph Waldo Emerson.. I just love that.. well thanks for looking... WISH ME LUCK!!!
