Layers, Layers, Layers - New ROP / BNW Challenge

Hello friends and thanks for visiting me here today! It's Monday and time for a new fortnightly challenge at our Roses on Paper & Belles 'n Whistles combined challenge blog! The extraordinary talented Jodi is our hostess this time and she wants to see a Birthday Card & Layers! I LOVE layers and this is definitely my comfort zone, thanks Jodi :-) For all the details and what great prize Summer has to offer this time visit our challenge blog HERE. The challege will be posted during the course of the day!

Ok I have to admit my card has lots of layers but is not necessarily a birthday card.... LOL. But thanks Jodi for accepting it anyway ;-) I decided to make an Easel-Card and I used 'Traveler Anya' from the Greeting Farm and the 'Eiffel Tower' stamp from an older Magnolia collection and colored the images using my Copics and my Copic airbrush system. A list of Copic colors used is at the end of this posting. The DP I've used is from Basic Grey (green at heart & porcelaine collections) and my CS is Bazzill. The flowers are from Prima, punched out and my stash. The sentiment 'Bon Voyage'  is computer generated and the other sentiments and the littel Eiffel Tower stamp is from a Stampin Up collection called "Paris in the Spring". For highlights and decorating I used half-pearls, ribbon, Stickles , sewing with the machine and a heart shaped rhinestone on top of the Eiffel Tower ;-)
My card also fits for the first challenge at The Crafty Alley, where the challenge theme is 'sewing'.
