Lots of layers!

Happy Thursday my crafty friends! Although the past couple of months have had some very low moments for me I am happy to say my life is on an upswing. Why do you ask? Well, one secret I have to keep for a little bit longer but also, I am going to England to see my BFF! Whoop whoop! I have been planning this for almost a year now and it will be here before we know it. So nice to have something to look forward too this time of year.

Okay, so I suppose you are here to see my card for Mo's DP challenge huh? Well our super talented Franz (adore her work!) has asked us to use "lots of layers" this time. Easy for me, I usually have several, it is all the other embellishments I struggle with.

This is Rory, is she not the cutest thing you have seen in a long time? I love these bright colors too, I just can't seem to work with pastels very well. The hearts in the corner are chipboard that I covered with scor tape, sprinkled with glitter then covered with glossy accents. Papers are an older MME pad, and yes, I finally broke down and bought some new pads. I couldn't resist the new bright floral prints I saw! The sentiment is by Whimsy.

Okay, lets see all of your layers and for every 25 entries Mo is giving away a $5 voucher to the store. And please try to leave the dt some love, we so enjoy hearing from you and also seeing what you have made. One big happy crafty family right?

I am sorry I don't have my copics list, I must have tossed it while I was cleaning up.

I love this card. The intensity of the colors make me smile. What a shame that you dont have the copic colors. It would have been great to help me work with new colors. Seems I do mostly pastels. Anyway, always love your cards. Keep up the great work and as always thank you for sharing.

Oh yeah I'm delighting in those colors myself. Fantastic color scheme and I can't see where you have a bit of problem with embellies. Love your DIY hearts. Hugs!
