DYSU Challenge #59- LAYERS!

For this week we have three great sponsors:

Winner's Choice of 2 Digital Stamps

$10 Gift Certificate

$20 Gift Certificate

Now we're talkin'!
I love working with layers!

I've have just recently gotten comfortable with piling it on, and I love the styles of the famous cardmakers who just load it up!

And you might note that many of the design team members have two projects to showcase this week! Whee!  One of those is ME!

One of the images I received to work with was from
Little Miss Muffet
  Isn't she cute?

My first center step card!
I paper pieced her coat, scarf, and hat.  I then added some Stampendous Shabby White embossing powder, and used a tiny, tiny ruffle peeking out from under her coat!
As troublesome as making a step card can be, I think they really make a card stand out!

For anyone who's curious, I simply finished the inside with a sentiment and strip of matching papers.

I also entered this card in the challenges at :
Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Ribbon Carousel Challenge
Fab n Funky Challenges (Try Something New)

My second card was with a
Tickled Pink image,
or as he has been nicknamed here at my house,
"the little surfer dude".

Yes, you're seeing more of the Stampendous chunky embossing powders and crushed glass.  I am soooo addicted to that stuff!  Doesn't it make some amazing sand, though?

And a close up of the image...  Note that the sunglasses have Glossy Accents on the lenses.  Also, I have to chuckle every time I see that tiny little band-aid on his leg!
Yep, part of the image!  Cute, huh?

The brown satin ribbon was a great addition to the popped-up 3-D flip-flops, and his paper pieced surf board would be the envy of any surfer!  Hang 10, Dude!

Thanks for looking, and please, leave a comment and become a follower!
I'd love to know you were here!

Now, GO and check out the rest of the team's projects!
