There's no place like home...

Hi friends. TGIF. The girls were out the door bright and early for volleyball practice. These early mornings are for the birds. Need coffee.

Anywho, I'm up and at 'em so let's start the day off with a cute card. This month's Friendship Jar Fall Filler set was a hit at Papertrey. I'm so glad you liked this set. The witchy feet image was so wonderfully illustrated by Nichole. She drew it up just like I imagined she would. I couldn't wait to use it on a card.
As a Kansas girl, you can't see these cute witchy feet and not think of The Wizard of Oz. I just recently bought the movie for the girls to watch. You can't go through life not knowing about Dorothy and Toto and their fantastic journey.
In ode to Dorothy, I created some wonderful ruby shoes, a burnt broom and a Dorothy's picnic basket. For the jar image, I first stamped the polka dot filler into the jar using Chamomile ink from the Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo. I then stamped the witchy feet image and colored it in with my handy dandy Copic markers. I added ruby red glitter to the witch's boots and to some Vintage Buttons for lots of glitz. I always thought those ruby red slippers of Dorothy's were like magic!
I also added Dorothy's picnic basket to my card front. The wicker basket from Vintage Picnic along with the napkin liner was just the ticket! I colored it with Copic markers also, then cut it out and attached it to the card with pop dots. For my card sentiment, I knew just where to look. Boards and Beams has sentiment that is perfect for the Wizard of Oz theme..."There's no place like home." Love. For the rest of my card, I used blue patterned paper that reflects the color of Dorothy's dress and some fun red and white polka dot paper. The blue ribbon is from my Etsy shop here.
Here's the Copic colors I used to color in all of my images.
Hope you enjoy my card today! We have company for the weekend so I'm off to start my day.

P.S. The orders are starting to trickle in for my new fall Etsy items. Soooo fun! I can't wait to share.

Love how your card came together using several of the PTI sets. Very pretty card with the added red sparkle for 'Dorothy's' shoes! Now I just have to be patient and wait for the reorder of the Fall Filler set to arrive at the PTI warehouse to get going on making autumn cards!

Kristi said...

Wizard of Oz is my all time FAVORITE movie! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!! My family and I visited the Land of Oz in North Carolina last year, so much fun!!

Anne said...

Love the glitz!

Cheryl said...

BRILLIANT! What a fantastic card! We moved from Utah to Virginia ten years ago, when my daughter was five. She had seen the Wizard of Oz a few times, and when we were driving through Kansas, she kept asking where Dorothy's house was. She was just sure it would be there!

Carol said...

Oh, I just LOVE this card!!

Becky Handforth said...

Love this card with the Red Sparkle. Thanks for sharing the Copic Colors. I just started with them and so many colors to pick from and I have to be selective with $$$$$$$ etc..so the little pics always help. Love your great addiction to being so creative.
