SHOPPING OUR STASH #401 - Base it off a Book

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
We have a fun new challenge at
SHOPPING OUR STASH this fortnight:
Base it off a Book!
For my card, I chose The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
by L. Frank Baum:

and the inside:

I love it when the designer paper you pick does all the work for you!
All I did was some fussy cutting, and then added red glitter embossing powder to 
Dorothy's shoes. They really do sparkle in real life. ☺

I always loved this book, and the friendship between the four main characters,
 so I stamped the simple message for the inside sentiment.

Now it's your turn! We hope that you find some time to play along
in our Based off a Book challenge at Shopping Our Stash! Looking for
more ideas? Simply check out what my teammates created for
your viewing pleasure. Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
