Lots of Layers at the Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Today I am popping by to share some inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is 
Lots of Layers
and we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

Here is my inspiration project using a cute friend sign image from Bugaboo.

I coloured the friends sign with promarkers using a selection of soft blues and pinks.  I also added some stickles to some of the elements but this doesn't show up very well in the photo.  Some faux stitching was added around the edge before matting onto some light brown card.  The background is made up of three layers (brown card, pink card and the striped paper).  For finishing touches I added some flowers, ric rac ribbon, a butterfly and some punched corners.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will check out the challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.
