Sneaky Peaky!

Now this was fun!  I took the latest digi stamp from Doodle Palace - they have a few new baby ones coming out tomorrow - and I printed it onto paper then used each of the clothes as a pattern for the patterned paper.  The original digi has all the detail (ie hearts and trim etc) on it so it was just a case of me transferring this onto the front of my patterned paper.  How cute?  My only problem was getting some white clouds onto the background card - look closely, they are there...honest!

And is this not the answer to a plea??? A fishing card for the dreaded men.  Decided to have a go at 3D-ing this one up and it came out really well...I printed out 3 copies of the image, then cut out the hat and box together and then just the hat, layered them all up and there we go.  Oh, obviously, I coloured them all in!  The sentiment was just something I did on word.  
And the side view to TRY and show the layers...not very well!  Lolx   Am entering this into the following challenges.... Rosie-Dee wanted Just for Men as the theme - no worries there then!  Am also entering it into Polka Doodles Paper Piecing challenge and in the same vein the Popping up challenge over on KLSNS

Thanks for taking the time to look - as always, the images are available from Doodle Palace!
