Lovely Layers

Hi everyone, another week has flown bye, wish time would slow down a little lol!!  Haven't the storms and floods been horrible.  My heart goes out to all those people who have been affected by them.  We had really strong winds last week, but things seem to have eased a little, lets hope it stays that way! My car got a bit damaged with falling tiles off the roof, but no major damage to the house, thankfully.

As it's Tuesday, it's time for another 'Paper Take Weekly' challenge, and this week it's 'Lovely Layers'. For my card this week, I've used the lovely 'Pre-Coloured' Art Pads from LOTV, I love these images!  The lovely papers are by Memory Box called 'Minuet' and I've had them for ages, they went so well with this lovely vase of flowers. I added stickles to the inside of the flowers for a little sparkle and instead of using card around the image, I used some of the papers, I think it looks quiet effective, and makes a nice frame.

My die cut flowers are a Marianne die that I love and use all the time, the gorgeous flowers are a mixture from the 'Ribbon Girl' and 'Wild Orchid Crafts', the ribbon is also from the 'Ribbon Girl'.. I won this quiet some time ago and have now just finished my last piece :(  I inked all the card and papers with Tim Holtz 'Old Paper' Distress ink, and the little butterflies are cut out with a 'Martha Stewart' punch, use this all the time too!
Do pop over to the 'Paper Take Weekly Challenge' blog and see all the lovely cards that the fabulous design team have made, there is a lovely prize to be won too!
