Totally Papercraft Challenge #125 - Layer Upon Layer



Totally Papercraft's Challenge today is being sponsored by Kenny K.



The challenge is to use three or more layers.  I actually have nine.  The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The gorgeous die is from Cheery Lynn.  The paper is actually quite old (at least 12 years).  It was paper that my daughter had for scrapbooking in high school.  She's now twenty-eight.  Nothing like keeping things a while.  If I don't watch out my family may call Hoarders on me.  Just kidding, I'm not that bad!  I have lots, but it's organized.

I had to oversize this card so I would be able to color the detail.  It's actually 7X7.  I don't know how I would mail it if I had to.  Maybe I can make a decorated box and put it in a padded envelope.  I can't image who I would send it to, though.  It might shock my friends a tad!

I was just about done with it and decided to remove the corner decoration that I had made and add flowers.  They are actually two different shades of red and purple.  It still needed something.  I looked though my stash and came up with the purple feathers.  Just the right touch, I think.

Copics:  C00, CO, C1, C3, C5, C7, BG000, E00, E01, E11, E13, E19, E49, E08, 
G14, R20, R24, R27, R29, V01, V04, V06, Y28
