I wanted to share this card with you that I did the other day. It was in a swap that my friend Lee had but I didn't write down who made it.  I changed up the colors a little using Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black and a bit of Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. 

The base is done in Whisper white and matted with Daffodil cut to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and textured with the Perfect Polka Dot TIEF.  I only did about 1/2 of the paper, as you can see in the picture.  Next I cut a strip of Basic Black 5" x 1 1/4" and flagged the end with my square punch (you can do it with scissors if you don't have a sq. punch).  I used Mono Adhesive to attach the mat to the base and the black strip to the mat.  Next cut a piece of black paper 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 and a piece of white 3 1/8 x 2 1/8.  On the white piece you will use the Oval Designer Frames Folders to make the frame in the paper, next punch out a piece of DSP using your Extra Large oval punch. Tape the DSP oval into the   frame.  To make Micky, punch a 1" circle for his head and 2 1/2" circles for the ears.   Assembly by taping the smaller circles to the back of the larger one.  as shown.  Tape Micky's head to the DSP.  Then make a small bow for his tie, I used 1/2" Daffodil Delight Seam Binding (or use a contrasting color like red or blue) and wrap the tails around the the back of the white and adhere the bow with a glue dot.  Mount this piece to the Black and mount it to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
