Have a Special Day...

I am a huge Mo Manning fan - the images run from whimsical to poignant and are so versatile.  This little gal is no different with her sign/ paper that can hold a sentiment or a picture or??  
I printed her out twice, colored her with Copics and then fussy cut and sculpted the back of each of the four pieces.  These were individually layered on the base copy with certain edges glued flat and others elevated with foam tape.  As the two photos on the left are rotated you can see the 3-D effect that is not obvious on the full front shot.
The Ticket was stamped on left over DP that was also used for the edge of the message panel inside and the punched butterfly.  (I am a little obsessed with trying to use up scraps!)
I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the Teal layer, all layers were corner punched with a "Ticket Stub" punch.  Candi was colored and added to the corners (details and products used can be found below). The final touch was yarn-ribbon wrapped around the layer and knotted.
