Wednesday Sketch Challenge Teddy &Train

Here it's Wednesday again and I was fortunate enough to have time to play with this weeks Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. This sketch was right up my alley. I LOVE layers and this one had LOTS of them!!! I wanted to use the Stampin' Up! "Teddy & Train" set but I wasn't sure how I was going to get that teddy in that final layer. Well, cutting him out was the only option. He didn't fit there just stamping him in. And I really didn't want to make that #5 layer bigger. The whole purpose of the sketch is to follow their diagram. Making things bigger or smaller changes the sketch and takes away the challenge to the card!!

SO in sticking with the dimensions of the sketch this is what I came up with!!! I LOVED every minute of making this card!!

That little set sure has a lot of nice images to it. On the Certainly Celery strip there is a little duck stamped all over the place. I got it off the end of the train that comes in the set!! I was originally going to run the train along that strip but I didn't like the idea of the train going north and south when the layout of the rest of the card wasn't headed that way!!! SO just taking the duck was the way to go!! It worked!!

The Pretty in Pink layer has baby rattles stamped all over it using Pretty in Pink ink! I wanted to keep the colors soft but yet visible. Often using VersaMark just isn't dark enough for me. I often use the inks that match the card stock instead of VersaMark.

Those adorable buttons came from a package of little buttons from Michael's a LONG time ago. There isn't much left in that package anymore. Fortunately these buttons fit with the card nicely and I was able to use them!!!

The white background on this card was done using the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. It was a pretty simple card to do, just lots of layering. But like I said I LOVE layering!!! It was fun!!! Go play with this sketch if you have time!!! Challenge yourself to do something with this many layers!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
