This week at Just Add Ink, Delys has laid down the challenge to "just add layers" to your card or other papercraft project.

I love to add layers to my cards ("one layer", and "clean and simple", are terms that terrify me!).  I stayed fairly conservative with my sample for this week's challenge, though, as it had to be posted - and I wanted it to reach the recipient in reasonable condition!

Using the beautiful Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper, I was able to add extra dimension to the pattern already printed in the paper, by cutting out and adhering extra roses.  Dazzling Details adds a bit more 'pretty' to the flowers.

The sentiment has been layered up on stampin' dimensionals.

Stamps: Label Love
Card: Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla
DSP: Afternoon Picnic and Pear Pizzazz Patterns Designer Series Papers
Ink: Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz stampin' pads
Other: Artisan Label punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, Beautiful Wings embosslits, Basic Pearls, sponge daubers, Very Vanilla seam binding, Pear Pizzazz taffeta ribbon, glue dots, Dazzling Details
We'd love to have you join in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.  Check out the rest of the Design Team's samples, for some inspiration!
