I tell my kids all the time that working hard is not enough. You have to work smart too.
"What is this?", I would ask them while pointing a finger at my head.
It's ironic that the person who often says "Use your noggin'. Think!" is also the one to do things the hard way. (Yes, I'm referring to me in case you haven't figured that out yet. :P )
Today's card is a case in point. I could have finished it in less than 30 minutes but I just had to meddle with LD's Sweet Dreams file. In the original image, the girl layer is attached to the moon. I really wanted the image to "pop" so I spent twice the time separating the girl from the moon.
I think that the time spent was worth it. Doesn't the image look cuter when the girl layer is elevated above the moon? It's like she's really sitting on it! In case you are interested in doing the same, the following is a screenshot of how the image looks like after all the modifications.
The card base was printed and manually trimmed down to size with my paper trimmer.
If you are interested in making today's card but do not care for, or have the time to modify the file, it's not a problem at all. The original LD file is perfectly fine. Your card will not have the added dimension but it'll still look super adorable.
Here's my finished card:
