Layers and Layers

I woke up to brilliant sunshine again today; I love it when the sun shines because everyone seems so happy. That makes 3 days of sun in a row now so it seems like spring is finally on its way. Woo Hoo!

I'm so pleased that I had time to make a card for the following challenges:

Penny Black - Easel Card

Create 4 Fun - the sketch layout

Polkadoodles - Wings

Today's card has lots and lots of layers in it and instead of using lots of different papers, colours and patterns, I've used the same paper for each layer and I'm pleased with the way it has turned out. This another one that is going to be popped into the Christmas box (and I think I already know who will receive it- but I can't tell you)

Items used:
Penny Black - Angel Cat
Stampendous - Joy to the world
Inkadinkado Christmas Borders
Papers Bearly Mine
McGill 1-1.5 inch Pine Punch
Kaleidoscope Embossing powder
Distress Inks: Dried Marigold, Black Soot, Weathered Wood, Antique Rose
Glamour Dust.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
