Dorothy & The Kid, Babes & Tots

Click on photo for larger image
This was a fun card to make. Love the Octopode people! This is Dorothy and The Kid. Check out The Octopode Factory Etsy store for Lily's weird and wonderful little people! Another great challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. Awesome site!

Love Dr. Seuss! Love all his books! Perfect quote for this card! Can't believe Mike never read any of his books as a kid! Boy, did he miss out!

Entered in 2 challenges:
1. Gingersnap Creations Challenge:
 GC113 Chestnut Theme: Babes & Tots
2. The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge:
 TOFF #7 Hats And/Or Crowns

Supplies and what I did...
- I printed the images off on transparent/vellum paper and let dry.
- Cut them out and sprayed vellum adhesive on back and stuck them to pre-cut Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper. All paper used was from this paper stack (except black CS)
- distressed all edges and added DI Black Soot around edges
- printed off images on cardstock and cutout bows and shoes and applied to card; used glitter pens 
- Sentiment is from the internet; American Typewriter font (my fav at the moment!) and a script font.
- pearls from Michael's
- photo corner punch

Super cute card! Those little people will capture the hearts of many, lol. I enjoyed your video today. I was watching the crowd and they seem to be near my age, I guess we all adored him when we were 14 and still do!
