Lots of layers

Get me!  Blogging twice in two days!

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to have time to do much more this week but my other half's surgery was put off by a day so I've had to have an extra day off to hubby sit.  He's fine, but I wasn't supposed to leave him for 24 hours after his operation.  Well, my craft room is in the same house!  I don't really think he needed me to actually hold his hand or anything.

So, what to do with an unexpected day off.  Maybe I should join another challenge.  It's a bit of a luxury as I don't always get time.  I follow lots of challenges on Bloglovin. It's an easy way to see lots of inspiration. Anyway, this morning had a challenge from Passion for Promarkers and this week it's being sponsored by one of my favourite digistamp shops.  I couldn't resist.  I am a huge fan of the Digistamp Boutique and I happened to have some of their stamps printed out ready to go.  The challenge doesn't need you to use one of their stamps but it just seemed a good excuse so I used one from the Cute Robin Chicklets Set.  I used a mixture of Tria Markers and Promarkers and used non traditional Christmas colours.  The challenge was to use lots of layers and here is what I came up with.

I layered two co-ordinating papers (sorry, I never remember where my papers come from) and stuck another panel from the same set where I wanted to put my robin.  I added some hand stitching and layered two lots of ribbon before sticking it to my card blank.  I finished it off by layering gemstones onto snowflakes.  I hope you like it.

Thanks for reading.
