Layer it on

Create a card that has at least five layers! This can be designer papers, and cardstocks stacked on top of one another, 3-D effects, pop-ups, embellishments, etc...You decide! Just make sure you have five layers somewhere on your card front when you're finished!

SPONSOR: The Greeting Farm

PRIZE: SINGLE of winner's choice

I used all Stampin' Up! stamps for this project.  NO patterned papers, its all stamping and distressing.  
Did  I meet the challenge??  Let's count at the "thickest" point, shall we?
1. first layer background matt
2. stamped background
3. clock face
4. red torn edge
5. matt for sentiment
6. sentiment

6!   6 layers.
Mwaaaa aaaa aaaah!  (lightning and thunder)  
Did any of you get the  Sesame Street reference??  The Count?
I've had way too much sugar....

Sugar??? AH! that is the reason... LOL. I'm having tea, so I am a BIT quiet. Your card is very lovely. There is such a feeling of deepness preciousness, and fragility, when I look at it, I don't know if it's because of the clock, the deep colors, the gorgeous crackled background, but I feel something in my heart. Of course the sentiment is indeed precious in itself, but you capture the totality of this message in your work. Congrats, sister DT, it's MAGNIFIQUE. and I adore.

Yeah, I wish I was able to cope without humongous piles of patterned paper. Just creating the whole card from scratch, by stamping/sponging etc. Freakin' amazing job!!
