Let's Craft and Create Challenge #140: LOTS OF LAYERS with the option of Anything Goes...

The August challenge over on the Let's Craft and Create blog calls for lots of layers. I'm not one to usually add a lot of layers to my cards, so I had to think about this one for a while. What helped immensely was looking through some card layouts that I've saved. Here's what I came up with:

I was in the mood for making a sunny, happy card, so I picked out some coordinating yellow patterned cardstock from which to cut my layers. As I looked at the cardstock, it reminded me of daisies, so I searched through my flower dies to find something that would work. I created my sentiment banner with an unbranded stitched die and added a little yellow twine for decoration. It's been popped up with foam tape.

This daisy die and its leaves are also unbranded, but there are lots and lots of other daisy dies out there. I know I've used one from Spellbinders in the past.

My little butterfly is a Fiskars punch and the flower centers are Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I maybe shouldn't have added the polka dots to my butterfly, but it is well and truly glued down now, so it'll have to remain as is.

I've added just a couple of little punched butterflies to dress up my card's interior and kept the stamped sentiment very simple.

I actually had a good time following the card layout, so I think I'll try to use more layouts in the future. It certainly saved time in figuring out the sizes of all my layers.

Now it's your turn. We'd LOVE it if you'd join our August challenge at Let's Craft and Create and make your own card with lots of layers.  Or, you can always enter with the "Anything Goes" option.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

So cute! It surely is sunny. Daisies are one of my favorites. I think the butterfly looks good with polka dots. Butterflies are seldom one color. Great sketch.

Oh what a beautiful daisy card.

Oh I love your happy sunny card Cheryl! Your spotty butterfly is perfect, it pulls your whole colour theme together. Glad you enjoyed using your layout - I'm a total sketch addict and can hardly make a card without one!

So cheerful and bright and happy. Love the Nuvo dots in the center, I am loving the Nuvo products. You did get some layers going there for sure.
Got some not so good news - my shoulder relacement is NOT in the socket, the new ball is sitting on the edge of the socket, so looking at probably more surgery. See a specialist in two weeks. Not a happy camper. Your fun happy card helped me out of my funk.
