MMSC5 - You've Got Flair

Here is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch #5 OK, I'm posting this card here not because I like it or am proud of it, but only because I spent two days making it and still wasn't pleased with it. The only way I could forget about it and move on was to post it. I'm hoping that it may be like trash. You know, one mans trash is another mans treasure. Well, just maybe someone would see it and like it. *Ü*
This is the July Stamp of the Month from Close to my Heart. So, I wanted to start playing with it. I'm a Technique Junkie, and last month, one of the techniques was called Bandanna. It's just white dot doodles with a white gel pen. I knew this stamp set would be perfect for it, however, trying to work it into this sketch was a challenge for me. I think I just have the card too busy!

The red top portion is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. It matches this stamp set so well!!!!
Glitter was added here and there on some of the white portions of the cutout images.

The center image is stamped three times, embossed, colored with copic markers and cut out and layered for a 3D affect.
