Layers at Try It On Tuesday

Hi Folks,

Its time for a new challenge over at Try It On Tuesdays and this fortnight its Show us your Layers,
this can be paper layers, layered embellishments - anything that can be layered up.  For this challenge we are again sponsored by Smudgetastic.

For my card I decided to heat emboss my image  with 3 layers of clear Embossing Powder, and although its difficult to see in the photo, this gives  a lovely gloss finish . This was then layered onto gold card, and my frame is 2nd size Nestie Romantic Rectangle, stamped while still in the die. The layered flower is made from a  TH Tattered Florals die.  Ribbon and netting coloured with Distress Stains to match.

I am entering this card in:
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Crafty Ribbons - Vintage
  MAWTT - Girly & Prim & Proper

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking.

Avril xx
