IAAS Not CAS - layer it up

Come along and join us at International Art and Soul. The theme is 'Layer it up'. 

I used an 8x8 card blank by Craft UK and matted on to it an orange card by Papermill. A sheet of yellow card, again by Papermill, was embossed with a flower pattern and matted on top of the orange. The image is by Bugaboo and I bought it, and the sentiment, especially for my daughter in law's birthday card. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and cut it with a Spellbinder circle die before edging with Distress Ink. The circle was then matted on to a scalloped circle of beautiful orange and yellow paper that I've had in my stash for a while. I set the image to the top left before adding the sentiment to the bottom right. This was cut with a Spellbinder rectangle die and matted on to the scalloped rectangle in the patterned paper. I added five pearls below the sentiment. My daughter in law loved the card I'm pleased to say. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
