My DT card for Make It Monday
This image is from SU! Greeting Card Kids
I center creased each layer as well as the image, applied a tiny bit of adhesive and then sewed her onto the last layer.
The white flowers were altered with Derwent Watercolor Pencils and the pearls were colored with Copic marker R27.
Here is the link if you'd like to see where I got my inspiration and directions.
The directions are wonderful but I altered them a bit by measuring the space needed for the main image and then making each additional window opening approximately 1/4" wider as I progressed to the top layer.

This is always the most fun, but the hardest thing to do...
Kudos to ALL the amazing crafters who submitted entries last week...
You are ALWAYS an inspiration to me.
But alas, I must only pick one, so here it is.
I loved the stenciled tree and the pop of color only on the Geisha and the CAS frame of the card, yet elegant all at the same time.  
Nicely done, Jan!

Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit.
I love your comments and encouragement and always the laughs!
Happy stamping...
