Mo's Challenge # 133

 Follow the Yellow Brick Road!

For Mo's Challenge this week you have the option of using Iulia's great sketch or do an Anything Goes card or project using one of  Mo's wonderful images!
I liked the sketch, but went with the second option for my card.

I made a  card using "Kansas" because our granddaughter is in "The Wizard of Oz" at her school,  playing dual roles as a Munchkin and citizen of Oz.

I used a Paper Studio embossing folder that reminded me of sunflowers and made sunflowers out of Prima daisies and corduroy brads from SU!. I drew the yellow brick road using Copics. I've colored her ruby slippers with a Spica pen, but the sparkle doesn't show up in the photo.

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Spica pen, Cuttlebug with Embossing folder Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set, Mounting tape, Needle and thread

Papers: SU! Daffodil and Summer Sun, Pacific Point Blue, Garden Green, Neenah smooth white

Embellishments: Prima daisies, Corduroy buttons, Grosgrain ribbon, Button

Here's Iulia's sketch, if you choose to use it.
