Layers at Sassy Cheryl's

I told my friends at Sassy Cheryl's that they should be careful not to fall on the floor because I have actually managed to get a card made for the current challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog , which is all about LOTS OF LAYERS.

I started a different card and coloured an image for the first time in probably 4 months but then I tried to get artsy and ruined the image so I had to scrap that effort and start again.  I was checking to see if I had anything else printed and found an image that was already coloured - bonus.  I had done it when I visited my friend Ann English last May and she let me use her Copics - not my usual medium but with her expert guidance I got something worth keeping.

From the bottom up, here is my card:

I started with some Recollections card stock for the blank (this card is a 6" square).  Next I added some green patterned paper from my stash for the background.  Next came a couple of Provo Craft papers (also from my scraps) and then a band of white card stock that was punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch.

I added three rows of ribbon from Michaels and some Recollections pearl stickers.  The flower is made up of a white Prima flower and a couple of coloured flowers from Dollarama.  I added a button from my stash and some baker's twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Next I fussy cut around the image before adhering it.  Voila, lots of layers.  I decided not to add a sentiment because I am not sure how this card will be used. 

This is not my usual style of crafting since I normally do vintage or shabby chic so I struggled with this.  Even though I absolutely love these Sassy images, my pea brain can't seem to combine my style with her wonderful images.  I will keep trying though now that I have more time since I am officially retired again.

I don't know what this image is called and I can't find it in the Sassy Cheryl Stamp Store but that could be because I didn't look hard enough.  If it isn't there, not to worry because Cheryl has lots of other fabulous digis, including a set of twins that just arrived and are adorable.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's -Lots of Layers with a Sassy Cheryl Image
That Craft Place - Buttons
Left of Center Challenges - Ribbon and/or Flowers
