No Place Like Home

Starting with the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the color red for the Artistic Outpost Challenge and the Kraft Journal Challenge, this card was born.
With the color red as the focus, the ruby slippers stamp from Artistic Outpost's Oz Collage was the perfect image. Of course, the sentiment followed accordingly. I stamped the slippers in ruby ink (Club Scrap) and embossed them using the new Deliquesce Clear embossing powder from Creative Inspirations. The layering panels were cut from red Kraft-Core Core'dinations.  The circular panel was edged with Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint. The larger panel was dry embossed and then sanded. The card panel is from Graphics45 Oz collection. I painted over the poppies with Fairy Dust paint to add shimmer to the background.
This card also works with the challenge at Fashionable Stamping which is Monochromatic and one other color (kraft).
