to Layer or not to Layer?

Hello!! A DT card to share today for

As You Like It Challenge

where the theme this fortnight is to showcase your projects showing one or more layers...don't forget to tell us why!!

It's layers for me as I have a lifetime's worth of paper pads to use up!!


I started with a flat layer of LOTV backing paper (retired but available here in digi form) then mounted the frame on dimensional tape (layer 2), the darling little digi stamp Jillian is a freebie from Wee Stamps was coloured with Promarkers and made layer 3. Finally the Taylored Expressions "happy" was die cut twice and layered up making...well...lots of layers in my book!!

Some challenges

Crafty Gals's Corner #56 - Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers #301 - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions #282 - All about the borders
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes

Looking forward to seeing you there!!

  38. I can well believe you have lots of paper stash...because you always have just The Perfect pattern on any card I've enjoyed here. This one is no exception. Love the cute image, and the happy colors. Cute scallop mat with the slight edge of color and the glitter of the sentiment just sparkles & shines. TFS & Hugs. Have a great week ahead.
