Oh Snap {MFTWSC57}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  It's week 57 of our WSC Getting Sketchy. We have another fabulous sketch for you this week! 

I must admit...these wonky panels threw me a bit, but I am SO glad that I pressed on as I am super happy with how my card came out!  Meanwhile...all that stress over the shape of those panels and I go and cover it up with my focal panel.  That right there is a total Jodi move (smile).

For my card today, I've used the darling a la modes in Picture Perfect from My Favorite Things.  It's been way too long since I've gotten her inky...I just love to color her!  I got quite a few of the new My Minds Eye paper pads (ok...I got all eight of them), and for my card today I used Miss Caroline/Dilly Dally.  LOVE these papers! 

I colored her with Copic Markers and added some shimmer to the camera with a Copic Spica Glitter Pen.  Here is a closeup of my coloring:

I added LOTS of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini and the sentiment, "Oh Snap!" (which totally makes me smile) was stamped on a panel cut with the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics.  I created this layered flower using my beloved Pretty Posies Die-Namics, and as I often do, I added a paper button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics tied with a bit of twine.  I finished off the front of my card with three silver brads in opposite corners and they are all layered on circles punched with a 1/4 Circle Punch.

 On the inside I added more patterned paper along with a border cut with the Simply Scallops Die-Namics.  I added another sentiment from this set, "You Can Change The World With A Smile" and added lots more stitching.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
