Four layers or LESS???

Do ya'll know that this is a tough feat for me? I never realized it until trying! Today's Jacksonbelle Embellishments Challenge is to create a card with 4 or less layers. That includes sentiment layers! It's tough, believe me!

My card base is a piece of Vintage Cream by PTI. I layered a piece of October Afternoon dp on and sponged some More Mustard ink on the base and the dp. I cut a strip of Cream cardstock and stamped my sentiment from "Harvest" (which is on sale!) in More Mustard. Next I added some brads from Basic Gray. Added some More Mustard ribbon to the top and bottom of the sentiment and then stuck the big Prima on and layered a Basic Gray button on top of that! Easy peasy card and I love it!

Check out what the rest of the girls did!

Okay, gotta cut it short, it's 7:14 pm and I have to go do some water-sampling, sounds fun, right? Ahhh...an Air Force girls' job is never done;)

Have a great Tuesday!
