Who doesn't love a Hoody?

Hi guys!! I have another one of my digi's from Whimsy Stamps to share with you today. This one is simply called Hoody
It's hard to see in this pic but that's a lil' puppy in her pocket. She was inspired by my daughter who is always in a hoody.

To paper piece her I first printed out the image on my Neenah cardstock that I use for my copics. Using that as a guide I took another sheet of white cardstock and lined up where it would print by holding both of them together to a light (poor man's lightbox). You could tape or glue the designer paper down but I prefer to glue. I am always afraid the tape will get hung up in my printer.
The next step was to shade the outfit on the designer paper. 
Now on to coloring her face and the pup on my other printed piece:
Originally I was only going to paper piece the hoody but I like the way the pants looked so much on the dp I changed my mind. I colored the pup with the same colors I used for her hair, YR14, YR21, YR31 and YR24.
Now to cut:
Then just to glue down the neck portion and pop dot the head and voila:
The pup is popped up too but I didn't get a good shot of that but here she is from the side:
I really, REALLY love these papers from K & Company so I opted against any  shapes that would cover them up. 
One more pic, then I promise... I'll quit ; )
The tag and the four corners all have these adorable brads that matched the papers perfectly and I just added a little pearl to each. The ones in the corners really don't show up in the pic but here's a close up of the tag:
Lot's of pics and that makes it seem like it was more complicated than it really was! 
Thanks for looking : )
