Sugar Creek Hollow Week 46: Lots of Layers

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
It is week 46 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and this week we would like to see you use "Lots of layers" in your vintage or shabby chic style cards. Things have still been super busy for me, hopefully this time next week, things will be back to a "so called normal."  
I think for the first time, I created something to take my mind off things.  It worked :0)
  Here is a picture of my project below.
Pin It!
I used some fabulous images from Gecko Galz, and fabulous ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, to create a bunch of lovely layers.
I started out with a 5 by 7 card base, inked the edges with vintage photo.  Next I used the Star Crossed digital paper, "St. Valentine's Greetings" image and Two to Tango images from Gecko Galz.  Now of course my images will look slightly different, because I used GIMP to create the specific sizes that I wanted for my card.
I distressed and inked all my edges with Ranger's Photo, created my own "sentiment" in GIMP, and used some pearls from my stash as well as some of my favorite goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Burgundy leaves, old gold diamond ribbon, pink lace, candi fix it foam pads and newsprint candis.
I created a simple flower to the left with the ribbon, and a rosette.
I used the fix it foam pads to elevate my text boxes and newsprint candis.  You can also see I created another layer with one of my favorite punches. 
I used the Baroque Script Font for my text boxes.
Here is a closeup of the Victorian boot image from the Bits and Pieces Collage sheet at Gecko Galz.
I can't wait to see all your luscious layers on your
Vintage or Shabby Chic style cards that you link up to 
 Sugar Creek Hollow this week!
Thank you for visiting!!
