Good Monday Morning!  Time for another Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge.  The challenge this week is to use lots of layers.  You can add a lot of layers to a card without making it really bulky.

Here is how I assembled this card.  I stamped and colored the adorable image by Motivet with Copic Markers.  I cut around the image and added Star Dust Stickles to the water. 

The strawberry print paper is by Cosmo Cricket and I cut it to leave just a small border of the white base card showing.  I cut a piece of matching green card stock and glued it to the designer paper, so that the designer paper shows a little below the green card stock and more at the top.  I made a border in white card stock with a new EK Success daisy chain punch and glued it to a  piece of bright yellow card stock, then glued that across the card.  I cut a 1/4 strip of the yellow card stock for above the border and on the green card stock at the bottom.  The red shape is cut from a Sizzix Die from Tim Holtz.  The yellow circle is punched out.  Those two shapes were run through the swiss dot embossing folder.  The shapes were popped up in the center of the card and the image is then added.  The sentiment is by Whipper Snapper Designs.

So, you see, a lot of different pieces went into making this card, which makes it interesting to look at.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful Monday.  Until later.............
