Do it yourself card!

Hi all,
Have decided to enter this for Susan Raihala's Simplicity OLW, 11 challenge, she asked us to make it funny, hope this works?

Made a card with the option to 'do it yourself', used one of my favourite stamps, Goosneck  a Stampotique Original and can't decide if I've over egged it now. I added a whimsical frame from Autumn Leaves and layered her skirt ( in this next one) with tissue embedded with holographic particles but the copics bled the ink.....................yes,  trying too hard I think and it doesn't qualify as One Layer!
I really like the sentiment (inkadinkadoo but retired) it makes me laugh every time I read it,  it's a bit rude really.

What d'you think, does it make you laugh or wince?

LOL, there's nothing better to do than craft! What a great joke. Your card is fab, too! I love how you embellished the skirt.

Hi, Thank you so much for leaving your very kind comments, none of you seem to mind that my sentiment is a bit, shall we say, 'challenging'. I must admit to being a little worried about using it, it's not particularly PC but it made me giggle. Perhaps I shouldn't have worried:)
