TIOT55 - Let's Have 3-Layer Cake!

It's Tuesday already!! Today we have another fantastic Try It Out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design to jump start your creativity! This week's challenge {TIOT55} is to create a card using ONLY THREE layers (the image panel doesn't have to count as one of the layers). Here's mine!

Well I am still just head-over-heels in love with The Aurora Collection by Victoria Case for SCACD! I've been making all kinds of projects with her -- she is just SO fun to color! For today's card I chose Aurora with Cake.

I stamped my sweet Aurora in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then I cut her out with the Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. The paper is all from Basic Grey (Bittersweet), which has had the edges roughed up and added faux stitching on each panel. The white sitching was all done with my new American Crafts white Ultimate Gel Pen - a nice, thick gel ink, really flows out easily, sooo nice! A swirl clip, some yummy ribbon and a tiny butterfly die cut to finish her off today!

I blurfed for challenges before I made this, I was feeling in need of inspiration on yet another cold and snowy day. Rachel had the PERFECT colors and butterfly theme on her Cupcake Inspiration Challenge {CIC46} this week, and the ladies over at Cupcake Craft Challenges {CCC78} would like us to Keep It Simple, perfect for this limited layer card! Last but not least, The Pink Elephant challenge {TPE54} called for ribbon, which actually had me go back and add the clip and ribbon twist, which I think goes a long way to bring this all together. So thanks ladies! I had fun playing along with all of you again this week.

Now DON'T FORGET -- going on now Cute-a-Palooza has begun from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design with THE YUMMIEST blog candy on the SCACD store blog, leading up to the big Elisabeth Bell for SCACD release this Friday, February 19th.
