Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge--LAYER IT UP


It's time for a new Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp! This week the
challenge theme is to LAYER IT UP, and the featured company is Concord & 9th.

You don't have to use Concord & 9th products to enter the challenge, but if you
already own them, then feel free to use them on your projects.

For this week's project, I layered Concord & 9th stamps and dies, beginning with
the tree ring that was white embossed on a gray card base. The "thanks" was cut 
three times and layered to form a thick sentiment, and ink distressed in pink ombré.

The leaf was cut once each from white card stock and vellum and adhered
to the card. I trimmed the second part of the sentiment and white embossed
it on dark gray card stock, then adhered it below the "thanks". One corner of 
the card was rounded off and finished with sequins.
 Visit today's post over at Simon Says Stamp Wed Challenge for all the details
and deadlines for this week's challenge.
The prize is a $50 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store. Come and join
the challenge, and we hope to see you in the gallery!
