Through the Craft Room Door & Doodle Pantry

Today begins a new Anything Goes challenge at

Sponsoring this week is
Doodle Pantry

I was so happy to use the adorable Li'l Tin from Doodle Pantry for my card this week.  Not only is he way too cute but he makes me think of my Mom who's a huge "Wizard of Oz" fan.

I got this embossing folder for Christmas and knew it was perfect for this image.  Since it's an A2 sized folder and I wanted to do a 6x6 card, I needed to camouflage where I joined the 2 sheets of embossed Reflective Mirror Cardstock.  That's where that the red ribbon came into action.  It was just placed over the seam.  Presto...now I have one large embossed mat.  The ribbon is from my stash as are the buttons.

In the picture above, you can see the gorgeous shimmer the Rosso Incandescent and Mirror Reflective cardstocks provide.  You can find both of those amazing papers at Paper Temptress.

Glossy Accents added a nice bit of shine and dimension to the heart in the sentiment that's included with the image.  There are actually 4 sentiments, colored and line drawings of Li'l Tin, and digi papers that you will receive with your purchase.  It's a super value!!
