Layers galore!!

Good Afternoon All,  I know "Another" Tilda,  can't help myself !!  I'm totally besotted with her just now.  The more I look at my collection the more I fall in love with her, I'm a sad anorak I know. lol.

Anyway, here is Tilda with her little parasol, she has been coloured with a mixture of mediums, promarkers and water colour pencils and I paper pieced her little brolly.

I have 7 paper layers on this card because I have lots of this My Minds Eye Ooh La La double sided 12 x 12 card stock paper with accessory sheets which I found in my local craft shop reduced from £17.99 to just £5.00 so I bought 2 packs. Just can't resist a bargain.

The full recipe for my card is below this post.  Oh before I forget, that's another hand made hatpin I created.  I'm loving making these and saving a fortune as well.

I've made this card for the following challenges:

Wild Orchid Crafts:  Would like to see embossing heat and/or dry and at least 3 layers.

Cupcake Challenge: Have a colour theme of Orange, Yellow, White and Green this week.

Oldie but a Goodie:  Would like to see lots of Layers this week.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day and the Sun is shining for you where ever you may be.
