Lots of Layers At The Sisterhood

Now that we are well into "Fall like weather"
I just can't seem to stop making fall color projects....
I love the colors of fall and came up with this "layered" card
for the challenge this week at "The Sisterhood of Crafters"
Dar is our hostess this week and she has asked us to use "lots of layers".

I decided to really dig in my stash of things I had, cut, stamped
and on hand for quite awhile.

The card base is SU Grovvy Quava, covered with a DS paper
from a Prima 2006 pad, time to use it, wouldn't you say?

The "frame" is one that had been around awhile and I framed my
stamped Impression Obsession bird ...

I keep my already stamped images, pieces of die cuts and loose "ephemera"
sorted in clear bags by color...
which made it easy to pull out the flowers and butterfly to match....
the little "ticket" at the bottom says 
"very best friends" and is a stamp and punch from SU!
The ribbon is also from SU, and I added a little wooden heart button,
perfect for the Digi Choosday challenge!!

It was fun to use what I already had available as it seems my "stash"
is ever growing!!

Drop on over to The Sisterhood and see what my "sistahs" have to inspire you!!
Why not join in with us, would love to see YOU there!!

Entering the following challenges:
Oldie But A Goodie .... Autumn~entire card is OLD stuff
Clear It Out .... Birthday and something shiney (my glossy butterfly)

I love using from my stash, including all my old designer papers. I could stop buying right now and never use it all up. You sure pulled out a beautiful combination of parts! Pretty bird, and all these fall colors go together so well!
