Young Crafter Unite Challenge #11: Many Layers

Hi everybody, it is time for another challenge at Young Crafters Unite. The theme is many layers.  CAS is my go-to style, and I usually keep the layers to minimum.  I spent quite long time to figure out how to add layers and still keep it my style.  I used some new My Mind's Eye paper, trimmed three paper panels and layered.  Two felt butterflies were die cut using Amuse butterfly trio and layered. Three more butterflies were die cut from card stock to add a few more layers and some interest.  I thought about adding a stamped sentiment and decided not to.  I like how it turned out.  Hope you will too.

You can check out the fabulous DT for more inspiration:


I hope you find time to play along. Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring us with a $25 gift certificate to their fabulous online store!

I am also entering this card to Paper Crafts magazine go-to gal Kim Kesti's Crafty month challenge: using one old item (butterfly die here) and one new item (MME paper).
Thanks for stopping by.

cardstock: recollection rustic white
paper: My Mind's eye, be happy
Die: Amuse butterfly trio.

Embellish Collage Color Trends Challenge

Today's card is for the current Embellish challenge.  I missed last two challenges over Embellish.  So I am determined to play this one even though collage is a really hard one for me. 

I found some card stock at Michael's that has a little texture and some speckles. I used it for the card base.  I don't have any patterned paper matches the colors.  So I stamped flower and leaves on a piece of MME paper.

Thanks for stopping by.

cardstock: Recollection white, pink, PTI purple
paper: memory box
Stamp: PTI day dreamer, PTI pretty peonies
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Fresh ink mango, island, silver lavender
