Pile It On #04 - Add Lace

It's challenge time again at Pile It On! This week we're sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy, and so have the theme "Add Lace" to go with their sweet images. One lucky winner will receive their choice of 2 digi sheets their online shop. I chose this groovy gal from Sheet #261:

This is a Free Standing Pop-Up Card, but it's not really a card as there's no room for a message section!. Here it is closed:

I couldn't get any good light in the house today (and it's too gray outside), and some of the best light is in the living room. So Walt helped me with these photos :) Allen stood behind me & barked the entire time.

I had so much fun making this. I've been saving this paper from  (I bought it from SP & Company as part of a $5 grab bag!), and I'm glad I used it for this. I printed the Whoopsi Daisy image along with this sentiment by Create with TLC as one piece, and then fussy-cut & colored another copy of the image. Her shirt & pants are printed onto Heidi Grace fabric. I added some embellishment with a glitter pen, and create the 3-D hair with a mix of yellow flocking & light brown FlowerSoft.

I masked the image and created a border with yellow Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I ran the the base piece through my sewing machine to create a zig-zag stitch.

Update: This card won the random prize for Pattie's Creations Challenge #35 - Fancy Folds! Thank you!
