Little Red Wagon # 264 - Layer it Up (Elf Ellie)

I am excited to be the host of this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon. I am also very excited to have my card featured on the The Paper Nest Dolls blog. This is my second opportunity having a card featured on the blog.

Since we appear to be facing a barrage of winter snow, ice and cold winds, my challenge for this week is appropriately named LAYER IT UP! That's right no CAS this week. Load up the paper and embellishments and come play along.

Creating a card with layers is never a problem for me. I generally like to use 3 or 4 pattern papers on my card, in addition to at least one coordinating cardstock to mat everything. On many of my recent cards I have also been including a variety of embellishments.

Today my card features an adorable image from The Paper Nest Dolls called Elf Ellie. I coloured this holiday cutie in teal and red and used paper from the 6x6 Pebbles Home for Christmas Collection.

I had a mixture of flowers in my stash, but unfortunately none in red or teal. I did have a lot of white flowers and so I used my Copic markers to colour them. Actually it was my Copic refill and a paint brush, but it worked so well.

Of course, layers aren't just for the outside of your card. Inside I mirrored the cardstock colours from the front and used the left over pattern paper to decorate the inside. I didn't use a second image this time, but I added a sentiment from Your Next Stamp's Holiday Sentiments set.

No matter what the weather is like where you are, I hope you will play along with this week's LAYER IT UP challenge at Little Red Wagon. Don't forget to check out each of the Girlfriends projects for additional inspiration.

Thanks for dropping by today and have a Wonderful Wednesday.
