Sweet Dee Dee

Hello everybody! Hope everyone had a great Monday! Today I have a the sweet little DEE DEE from TGF for you. My awesome neighbor has been taking my kids to school for me and so I am making her a little gift. This is the card to go along with the gift and I will share the rest as it gets finished. It's gotta be done by tonight so I'd better get on with it.

Once I decided on using Dee Dee I checked out the All That Scraps challenge blog and decided to play along with that as well. The challenge at ATS is to use dry embossing. I have 2 different embossed papers...For the dark paper I used my cuttle bug and the lighter paper is Bazzill that already came embossed.
Here you can see I've popped-up Dee Dee's hair and bows...I think this adds a nice little touch. I cut the little banner with my Cricut and the Mother's Day cartridge. I didn't want to do layers for the banner so I cut the bottom layer and shaded with copics the parts that would be shaded. I added stickles around the edges and in the shaded areas then glimmer misted the whole thing. The flower is one of the Primas I just got from Suzanne and I cut the leaves with my Cricut and then embossed them. Think that's about it, I have a lot to do, so I'll list my copics later.

Thanks for stopping by,
