Sleeping on the Job?

Hello and Happy Friday!
I don't know about you, but I certainly have felt like this lady on my card today! Isn't she FUN! She is from the Ai People line SKU# 4160 Asleep on the Job Set.
For my card I started out with a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" gray card base. On the front of my card I cut a strip off (about 1-1/12"), so you can see part of the inside of the pretty matching designer paper. I layered the front of my card with orange cardstock, and some pretty designer paper from My Minds Eye. I then sewed the layers onto the base of my card. I added some fun velvet orange ribbon, and die cut two circles to layer on the front. I stamped my fun image on the white cardstock circle, colored her in with Prisma Color pencils, and blended with gamsol and paper stumps. Layered her on my orange cardstock die cut. I cut a piece of some pretty lace, and glued it on the inside, just so it peeked out enough to see for a nice accent.
For the inside I used matching designer paper. I sewed around the edges for a nice touch. Then I cut a small panel of white cardstock,  (cut down so when you close the card you won't see it, you only see the designer paper). I stamped the inside with the FUN sentiment that comes with Asleep on the Job Set. For the final touches I added three rhinestones. Here is a close up of the colored image.
