SSIC Layers

This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is hosted by the lovely Miesje - who has chosen :

 "If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him?” Romans 8:31b-32

Miesje has challenged us to create a card or project that uses everything! The opposite of a CAS – toss on the embellishments and/or different papers, textures.

This challenge worked perfectly for me as I wanted to create a special Sympathy card for a dear friend who lost her husband and I wanted to fill it with all of the embellishments that she loves (and I do too) and have it overflowing with ambiance and love.

KandCompany paper, lace, pearls, Layers of Color Art Stamps, Spellbinders Paper Arts  Dies, Mulberry Roses, Seam Binding - all of those divine things we love to use.

Lots of details - anything but CAS and one of my favourite styles of cards !

This card is for the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy - Anything but a Square/Rectangle
Hotshot Crafts Ribbon
Our Craft Lounge - Spring
Stampin' For The Weekend - Anything Goes
Crafty Purple FrogAnything goes
Create Me Pink - Tear it up and/or distressing
