There's NO ONE in the World

I hope everyone's having a good week so far! :) I'm out again this week for business so these are going to be pre-scheduled.

Given that I'm traveling this week for business again, I figured this was an appropriate card to share. :)

I used a stamp die to create some stamp shaped die cuts and made "stamps" with them. I love that kraft paper gives it an aged look already. Using some brown colored pencils, I added some shading to the images. Also added some inking to it and crumpled the "stamps" for more of that aged look.

I made a bg with that paper and then trimmed it down. The headless lady is paper pieced and cut her out.

Let's see, what else? I love adding some gems to the edge of the sentiment and then using some decorative scissors to create a fun edge. Also love coloring the gems with copics to match my card colors. :)

Ok, I'm gonna cut this relatively short and let me know if there are any questions about the card. :) I'll try to get back to all emails and comments. I'm just trying to enjoy the last bit of my really short weekend. :)
