Layer Upon Layer.....{TKJ}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is
Layer Upon Layer

I am a big fan of using sketches so my card for this week is based on 
Deconstructed Sketch 112 
here is my card...hope you like it!
Sympathy cards are always so difficult to make and no one ever wants to have to make one but the sentiment I choose from My Creative Time~Floral Sentiment  was the perfect size to fit with the current sketch. I started my card with a Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and added my layers of pattern paper from My Minds Eye~ Unforgettable paper pack. Once all my layers were cut to size, I ran each layer through my sewing machine.

Here you can see the sentiment closer and the layers with my stitching.

To further embellish my card I cut all 3 layers of the Flower Petal Dies from MCT in the matching pattern paper and added a Custom Fastener (probably my FAVORITE embellishment from The Kraft Outlet) filled with some yellow stickles. Also added was some Metallic Twist Hemp Cord tied into a bow and placed under the flower.

So there you have inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
