7 Kids College Fund Challenge: Layers and Flowers!

10/13/2010 03:00:00 AM

Hello everyone!  Hope you're all having a good middle of the week :)

Today we have a new challenge over at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog!  It's an easy one so I hope you'll join us this week.  We're asking you to create something with lots of layers and lots of flowers!  For my card, at the thickest part, I have about 12 layers.  The sketch over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge made this an easy card to put lots of layers on :)

On my card, I've used the super cute Whiff of Joy Stamp called Henry Mouse with Cup of Cocoa.   The sentiment stamp is from the new Whiff of Joy Christmas Sentiments using the Fancy Shape die.  I did lots of distressing using the my Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and the Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad.  All the papers on this card are from the BasicGrey Pyrus 6x6 Paper Pad.  I really didn't think I'd be using these papers for a Christmas card, but I think it worked out pretty well!  The image was colored using Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  The border punch is the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge punch.

You can pick up most of the supplies I've used at the 7 Kids College Fund Store.  You already know that Tab has the best prices, great customer service, and super fast shipping.  Not to mention, you get free shipping if you order over $75!
