Mrs. Potato Head "Toystory Cartridge"

TADA!!!!  Here she is and what a lot of fussing I did with this card!  This one took me a while but I am proud of the way she turned out!!  I used my gypsy because my daughter in law has the cartridge to work on birthday party favors!!  This was a new one for me but was pleasantly surprised how easy it was once I got started!!  The card fits in a 5x7 envelope which made me happy that I didn't have to make an envelope too!!!  I used the shadow welded together to get the shape and jumped right over to create a critter and welded the cupcake in her hand!!!  Mrs Potato Head just calls for some bling and I love putting that on cards.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink to get some shading on the different cuts and even changed the colors of her shoes to get it to match better!!  The real shocker here is that I finished the inside of the card>  She stands up pretty well too!  Mrs P is cut at 5 inches and so is all her layers!!  I did put glossy accents on her lips so she looks like she has lipstick on but you cant tell by the picture!!  I hope my grand daughter likes this!!  She is always playing with her little figures like this.  Thanks for looking and leave a comment and let me know what you think!!!  PS papers started out as scraps but all the changing I ended up making more scraps!!!
