Sweet Stampin' - lots of layers

Our challenge for this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'lots of layers' and we also have a fab optional sketch that you can use if you like.  We're sponsored by Stamp Fairy and Sew Sweet and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen, so lots of chances to win :o)




No, I've got absolutely no idea why my card ended up all distressed - usually I only distress when it's part of a challenge, but I just had the urge to do it!

The image is Lenny Camping 1 from Stamp Fairy, coloured with prisma pencils.  The papers are MME - this was one of my favourite packs, but I haven't used them for ages, I'm determined to actually finish some paper packs this year lol.  The circle was embossed with the 'swiss dots' folder, sentiment is Stampin' Up and the buttons from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Hope you all have a fab day, whatever you're up to.  I feel the need for a crafty afternoon I think :o)

Sarah said...

Hi Lisa, well I think sometimes the cards they just talk to you and say 'distress me, distress me'! That's my story and I'm sticking to it, even tho there are men in white coats knocking at the door - they aren't for me, oh no!!!

It's gorgeous and love your clouds background.

Hope you've had a nice crafty afternoon.

Sarah
