Pedestal Card

First try at making a pedestal card. I took measurements from another site but they didn't quite work so I just winged it with my own. Here is the measurements:
Base is 4 1/4" x 11
Score this piece at 5 1/2 & 8 1/4"

The top part of the car base is (pattern paper) is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2
The white mat is 4" x 5 1/4"

bottom base is 3" x 4"
white mat is 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"

I made minnie mouse from the cartridge Mickey and Friends cut at 3"
The sentiment was an embellishment I had (Friends forever)
The sentiment on the bottom I stamped from stamp sentiments TPC Studio "Playful Expressions"

I love the base color paper I used. Its from DCWV "brights pack" its a really pretty greenish blue!
If I had a decent camera you might be able to see what the paper looks like but this isn't a cheap camera but it just doesn't take close up picture well at all. I stickled the heck out of the minnie and used glossy accents on her nose and eyes. But of course I can't take a close up for you to see!!
