Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. This week our hostess for the challenge is Heather Prince who has challenged us to create a distressed/shabby chic card with at least 7 layers (matts are counted as a layer) but the more layers the better!.

When you first read the challenge and the 7 layers you might think yikes … I know I did but in reality I often have 7 layers. It just looks a lot when it is written rather than when you see the card. KWIM! I actually have 9 layers on this one.

For my card I used Cheers Riley, the sentiment is from Moose Sayings 2 stamp set.


Here is the inside of my card, the sentiment is another of the sentiments included in the Moose Sayings 2 stamp set.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams blogs today so see what they created for this challenge.
