Hello and welcome...
The new challenge starts today at Crafty Cardmakers and this is my contribution to the design team

Chanya is hosting this challenge and the theme is 'Lots Of Layers'

I layered my card using Spellbinders's Scalloped Oval Dies in white card and pink paper.  The paper is by Craftwork Cards

The Gazebo, also by Spellbinders, was die cut in white card then I placed the die onto the pink paper and only embossed it.  I then cut around the outer image and glued the gazebo onto the pink paper

To complete I added a row of pearls to the top of the card and die cut the sentiment, also by Spellbinders, in white card, 3 times and once in the pink paper.  The white layers were glued together then added onto the pink paper, slightly overlapping, to give a shadow effect.  I also glittered the white sentiment with Glitter Jewels 'Diamond Snow' by Creative Expressions,  prior to adhering to the card

I also only glued either ends of the sentiment onto the card to enable me to 'bow' the sentiment

The card size is 5"x7"
