 Hello everyone,

I hope the Easter weekend went well for you all, mine was quiet, not too much chocolate or food, we have our Easter pot luck dinner in the Sunday [ at lunchtime though] and that was it really, I worked in my craft room for 4 days, did loads, but never really got any further!!..

So today it is time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  where I am hostess this week and my theme is..." AT LEAST TWO LAYERS" tricky for some, but gosh, I love layers of any sort flat or otherwise..

My project is in between..

I just cut papers and cardstock for a matt in spots and stripes,
 then a frame and sentiment and flowers with leaves..

{ hint: don't use hand cream in a craftroom, not a good idea}

Fixed it..and layered it all up with foam tape, so there's approx four layers.

Them my flowers went on, they were die cut and water coloured,
then splattered with black, the leaves were smooshed in paint..

The bulk is down the bottom, makes it stand up better as it is a 5x8 card,
and the leaves just poked in here and there to fill gaps and make my eyes happy..

Pearls scattered about and I was happy all over..

So do come and join us if you can, and if you have a load of layers to share..

Thank you so much for stopping by
I'll see you tomorrow..

Oh my that is gorgeous, I love the colors you used and the dimension must be something else!
I agree I make sure I don't use hand lotion before working on my cards and I also quit doing my nails I went to run down my card one time and got red nail polish on it, never again!
