You "GoGo" Girl!

Good morning!  I have a fun card to share with you today....  Yesterday I was blurfing and my friend Kathleen had the most amazing card that I just had to CASE it.  (Check it out HERE)I loved both her image and layout, so I used those as a starting point and put my own twist on it.

I remembered this fun DP that I've had in my stash for a looong time...I thought the retro vibe was perfect for this image and couldn't wait to paper piece her dress!  As I was cutting it out, I really questioned my choice...the pieces are tiny!  The image is colored with pencils and I added some subtle glitter to her headband, belt, and boots.  I used some dies from The Cat's Pajamas for the border and the sentiment.  I added some (actually LOTS!) of Swarovski flatback crystals to "bling it up" a bit.

Image: Sassy Studio Designs Digital Stamp
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Almost Amethyst and Poppy Parade, My Mind's Eye DP
Ink: SU! Black Marker
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Padparadscha", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Cat's Pajamas CutUps Dies (Circus Border and Circus Panels), Dimensionals
