Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Lots of Layers

We have a wonderful sponsor this week by way of Pink Gem Designs.  All of the design team were able to choose an image to work with.

Here is what I came up with using the Beer Monster image.

I decided that I needed to increase my stock of male cards and this image is just perfect.  Went for a bit of a monotone theme but using kraft card for the matting.  I rounded all the corners using my corner punch.  Some faux stitching was added to the image and the sentiment.  The papers are all from Papermania and for embellishements I just added some ribbon and card candi.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to enter.  Don't forget to check out the lovely creations from my talented teamies too.
