Ogres Have Layers ...

http://zaazu.comOnce again I got to take a turn at being Challenge Hostess over on SCS. Today's challenge was all about layers ... ogres have layers, onions have layers ... even Royal Wedding Cakes have layers (all right ... I know that's a stretch, but since today is THE Royal Wedding I had to take a shot at it!!)

Basically, the challenge is all about adding layers using punches, diecuts and whatever else you have hiding in your stash of supplies. (And I KNOW you have the punches, you HAVE the diecuts, you HAVE the technology - and for those of you old enough to remember "The Six Million Dollar Man" that last line shoulda put a smile on your face - and for those of you who AREN'T old enough ... don't even ask!!)!

This first card was inspired by my good friend, and fellow Dirty Girl - America Kuhn. She is a WIZARD at layering. Everything she does looks great, see?:

Two lovely cards. You always make such beautiful cards. Love the first card for the colours and all those layers and the train card is great for a little boy. Elizabeth xx
