SSIC Build It Up

 I hope you are having a lovely Sunday, it comes around so quickly each week!  With Sunday comes the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge, this week is it hosted by the lovely Traci

 who has chosen:

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."  Ephesians 4:29

Build up your card: by adding layers, paper tole, paper piecing, stacking flowers...you name it!!

I have used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven for this easel card.  The patterned paper is retired Stampin' Up!  My image is from Crafty Secrets and is popped up onto the Spellbinders Postage Stamp Die.  All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

The flowers are Mulberry Paper Roses and the divine bling is from Want2Scrap.  The bow is made using Seam Binding.

You can see all of the layers and dimension here.
