Woo Hoo...Anything Goes!!

It's time for another challenge from Totally Stampalicious and Anything Goes!!! How's that for a simple challenge. And here's a direct quote from the TS blog....
Now we expect to have quite a few players for this one...
but we've NEVER had 100 players or more! Soooo, if we go OVER the 100 player mark, we're going to give away a PRIZE valued at OVER $30!
  Now, how's that for a deal???
  For this one, I pulled out one of the new sets in the Bugaboo line from Totally Stampalicious. I colored the image with Copic markers. I stamped her twice, once on white and once on the dsp. I fussy cut the white layer and placed her over the other to match the tiny details on her outline that I couldn't cut out. Added some tiny half-pearls for her earrings. 
The dsp is from BoBunny and is part of the incredible bargains I got at Priceless, the LSS, on Black Friday. That's the only place I went on Friday as I don't like crowds and lines well enough to do the whole shopping thing. I just hung out there all day and played with new toys among some of my favorite people! Trish had these awesome paper packs for $11.99. Each pack included 50 sheets of Bo Bunny papers, most of them double sided and some doilies with cute edges, two sheets of chipboard, two sheets of rub-ons, a shaped book kit, and a package of buttons or bling!!! I guess I did do some Christmas shopping because I bought several of them!! I used one of the doilies and coordinating papers to make this card. I cut the doily so it covered most of the card with a right angle in the corner.
The sentiment was added by using a scalloped oval punch on a scrap of card stock that was folded in half. I didn't insert the paper all the way into the punch, meaning I left the folded edge partially unpunched. That gave me a flap under which I could hide the second half of the sentiment.
I'm pretty happy with this. After I made it, Bonnie and I were running around the whole store coming up with ideas for using some of those other oddly shaped papers that we never knew what to do with! Great...something new to collect!!!
