So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Autumn Layers of Color

This is for the Outlines Monday Challenge 18 - LOTS of Layers!  (Here is their website)

It is also for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #32 (RRR32) Autumn and using ribbon. I think it is Autumn because of the yellow, orange, brown colors and dp paper I chose for the flower and the inside is definitely Autumn. (Here is their website)

I had fun making this card. AND LOTS of layers!!! I used H-468 Spotted Blossom Outlines Stamp and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and created 10 layers of the flower. Then carefully cut out each layer and pop dotted them together to give the 3-D look. I used GKD Chocolate Brown cs, PaperTrey Autumn Abundance dp and Recollections Foil dp. There was also a layer put on the base of the card and the corners were punched with a flower corner punch. I used the Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif die cut to cut out the foil for the base of the flower. I also used some Sakura glitter pens to do some accents on the flower parts on some of the layers.

The inside used C1051 Outlines Script Thinking of You and B-1111 Happy Autumn and cut out with Blossoms Spellbinders. Of course had to add some bling and the lovely Fall copper colored ribbon on the front!

Happy Autumn!

Autumn layers and layers!
