Guest Designing for The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Hi, everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I am very excited to be a Step-Sister this month, creating alongside some very talented ladies over at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

They hold a bi-weekly challenge on their blog, and this week's theme is
Lots of Layers!

I have been working on so many simple "less is more" kinds of cards for a while now, and this multi-layered card was so much fun! Going back to layers and layers (there are 8 on my card today!) took me a minute to re-program my brain into doing! Lol! Today, I am using an image from Bugaboo Stamps. This is Grumpy Gertrude - Touch Coffee. She is a total laugh-riot, if you ask me! Gee.....I sure hope my admiring her doesn't mean I'm going to become here, someday! lol!

As usual, I have colored my image in my PhotoShop Elements program. I used the sentiment that comes with the image. I layered my main image with some pop dots, as well as the sentiment layer, just for a little bit of extra dimension. A couple of pretty purple rhinestones finished my card.
While I may have added lots of layers, I still kept this pretty CAS, with a lot of straight lines and an easy-peasy layout.

That's it for my card! I hope you can come up with a layered card to join in the fun! You have two weeks to do so....plenty of time! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
