Layers at Allsorts challenge

I am back with a second post for today as a new challenge starts today at Allsorts. It's Sarah's turn to host and she would like to see "Lots of Layers" and then there is always the "Anything Goes" option. Our prize this week is a Christmas bundle (12x12 DP pad, stamps, ephemera, chipboard and ribbons). 

I used to make very layered cards but not so much anymore and somehow this was pretty challenging to me. Still not sure if this qualifies as lots of layers but I did try my best. 

The image is an oldie by Penny Black (Botanical Notes) which I found already colored up in my box of unused images.  I am very thankful for as I spent so much time working like a mad crafter on all my June cards and posts as I will be taking a bit of a crafting break but didn't want the blog to be inactive so I had to get everything prepared. I am not traveling anywhere specific but have family visiting this upcoming week and staying with us until the end of June so crafting and blogging will be the last thing on my mind.

As this was already colored I have no idea what coloring medium was used. I added Stickles glitter for some sparkle. The sentiment is from the Tim Holz stamp set Tiny Text which comes with lots of inspirational quotes. I added a stripe of matching designer paper (Stampin Up - retired) on the a white card front which I used a Lavinia stencil on. Next I mounted that onto black card stock and finally a white base. I rounded the right side corners for a little interrest using an old Making Memories corner punch. I'm surprised that punch still works like new as so many of my old punches quit working but this one keeps going even though it's my oldest punch (20+ years old!!)
