Lots of Layers

Good morning everyone....it's almost 5:00 AM and the Royal Wedding is going on....I just saw the bride roll by and now she is getting out in front of the church...she looks gorgeous...Whoohoo!!!! This is the stuff fairytales are made of, for sure!!! I stayed up till after midnight to make this card for the Free 4 all challenge on Splitcoast but thought I should get to bed so I could get back up at 4:00 AM to watch the wedding...crazy, I know!!! Anyway....

The F4A challenge was to use layers...lots of layers which isn't hard for me to do!!! I have three layers of Nesties on a couple layers of designer paper and then layered the leaves and flower over that...this card will need a special hand made envelope because it's pretty thick!! The Layers of Color Merci Bouquet flower image was colored with Copics, the flower is from a SU die, the corrogated butterfly is from Jellibean, and the leaves are made from a Spellbinders Foliage die.
Recipe: Stamp: LOC Merce Bouquet, Paper: White, Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, Baja Breeze, October Afternoon Fly a Kite dp, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Accessories: Ribbon, Nestabilities, MFT Ric Rac die, Nestibilities, Spellbinders Foliage die, Stampin Up! flower die, Jellibean Corrogated butterfly, Pearls, Twine, Button

The wedding is over now so I can go back to bed...LOL!!! Thanks for dropping by and have a great Friday!!!

Gorgeous card! Love the image and the color with the flowers around it. I taped the wedding, just couldn't get up that early, but I saw the recap and what a fairytale. They both look very happy.

Hi Joan, I like the layered look in a card so this gets my vote straightaway. Love how the foliage spreads out over the card, and of course that adorable corrugated butterfly which looks amazing. You put me to shame, I slept through most of the wedding!!! I think I'll be thrown into the dungeons eek! CoB
