Make a wish!

Back again! Well it's Friday which means its also time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts. This week we are sponsored by 

and the challenge is to use 'Lots of Layers' - at least 3! So get out all those papers and embellishments and craft away! 
All the entries last week were fantastic - such talented crafters out there in Blogland! So do pop over to the TPC page and have a look at the inspiration the DT have produced for this week.
My contribution is this one, uses a 'Wee Stamps' digi image called 'Dandelion Girl'

These images all have such sweet expressions! I've coloured her with promarkers and prisma pencils - love using both these mediums for the depth & shading they give.
There are actually 7 layers on this card (if you count the matting layers too!) plus sentiment, ribbons, flowers, etc.! Trust me to get carried away and throw all sorts at it! 
The papers used are coredinations card and a couple of freebie papers.  I've used my faithful DooHickey 'Lovely Fence' die and a Marianne buckle die. The ribbon is from CardCraftUK. The sentiment is from LOTV. The little corner is actually from the Spellbinders 'Persian motifs' set, which I cut into four - they make sweet corners, with a pearl from my stash. The flowers are of course from Wild Orchid and the blue rose is actually an ivory one sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer! 

and a quick look at the inside too! 
Anyway, I'll stop waffling now and go and get some jobs done. I'm off work today - but that just means I do other jobs at home instead! And as Jack has now finished school for the summer I'll be wearing the taxi driver hat most likely too! 
Back soon - and can I just say a big thank you to all those who leave such lovely comments - they really mean such a lot! 
Take care, Kim x
