Just For You... Goldilocks

This week Michelle Perkett Studios meets Operation Write Home (OWH) and team up for an awesome challenge on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog as well as the Michelle Perkett Studios challenge blog.  For my card creation today I used Goldilocks and paired her up with some lovely purple patterned paper from DCWV.  Goldilocks is available as a freebie for a limited time along with Mary Margaret on the OWH Stars and Stamps challenge blog.

My card base is Kraft layered with a slightly smaller piece of DCWV purple cardstock then PTI White.  The patterned paper is also from a DCWV paper pack I picked up at JoAnn's years ago and was cut 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 then angled so that only the edges of the PTI White are showing.  The shadow layer is a 3 1/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Kraft cardstock.  I wrapped organdy ribbon around it and taped the ends down on the back side.

The image measures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 and was printed on PTI White then colored in using copic markers.  I layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of dark puple cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using the Just For You stamp from Hero Arts.  To embellish the card I add two buttons threaded with DMC White.

Hope you had a great weekend!
