The challenge for Paper Smooches for June was layers, lots of layers.  I thought about this for several days and realized it could be just about anything, layered.

There are many layered features to this card.  I die cut the flowers from the Paper Smooches Dainty Flowers die set in heavy white card stock and then colored them with copic markers.  I think I have a better range of color with the markers than my stash of heavy card stock!  I layered them in a row, ready to attach to my card.  I die cut Happy Birthday from the Paper Smooches Birthday Words die set in black paper.  After I had removed the letters, I realized I liked the negative space better!  So I just had to attach the tiny spots to fill in the letters.  I must say, I cheated on the tiny tiny dot in the middle of the letter "B".  I just made a dot with my pen! I created the shaker card by making a frame and using two layers of foam tape.  I bought the set of Doodlebug Sequins Rainbow pack and had never used them!  They were perfect since I could select some of the six colors I had used.  I glued my Dainty Flowers ON TOP of the acetate window.  This allows for the sequins to dance beneath the flowers.

This card is bright and fun!  I know the perfect person who will receive this card.

Thanks for visiting.
