Layered card

Here is the Unstampabelles' challenge for September 2019.

Time for Recess (Apertures)  TWIST Luscious Layering

I have started with a Colorbok Frame punch out sheet. I punched out the frames and was left with the holes. The apertures were therefore all ready to go. As they retained a line of colour that gave me the colours to use for the card.  

I backed the yellow and orange first and then the rest got the blue and white patterned paper.  I popped two of the frames. These were from the original sheet.  I also added a clock die cut (also popped), a chipboard xoxo piece and a handmade cardstock flower which has a lot of dimension.

I backed all of this on to orange paper and stuck it all on light blue cardstock.  So, lots of layers.

What will you make?

I love horses. I had a great love affair with them when I was a child.  I took riding lessons from 8 years old and went to 4 different riding schools. We bred and trained race horses. My Dad and my Uncle were hobby trainers.  I spent a lot of my youth at the Races.

The only time I go now is on Melbourne Cup Day.

Here is my layout inspired by horses.

I love the background paper. Glad to be able to finally use it. I was saving it. You know how you do.  hehehe

I've made a layout about my Christmas gift to my Mum. She's a long time Elvis fan.

Pretty cute huh?
