CCM #261 Lots of Layers

I hope you have all had a fabulous Summer. We are back today at Crafty Cardmakers after our long Summer break, and we are kicking off the challenges with Lots Of Layers.

I have used a cute new set of papers from Craft Consortium from the Gift of Giving range. What better way to get lots of layers than decoupage! So also from the same range they have a decoupage kit. I have used two papers from the 6” pad, plus the kitten decoupage. The ornate frame diecut was cut from the lemon paper from the centre as it was going to be covered by the balloon paper, so why waste the middle!

The sentiment comes from a huge year of sentiments pad from Craftwork Cards, but it was the wrong shape so I had to trim it into a square. The gems are coloured with copics to match the design.

I am entering this into:-
