How many layers?

Hello friends

I'm stepping away from the wine today..well in crafting that is,
I may enjoy a glass of the real thing this evening!

Instead, for today's project I've gone all layered and purple.
This is Sweetheart Swirl, one of the Romancing the Swirl dies.
It is a 4 piece die set and handy to be able to leave the centre whole
or use the oval to create an aperture. 

I started with a 5 x 7 ivory card base and applied a strip of purple/lilac paper vertically.
I then cut a solid Sweetheart Swirl from ivory and then a second solid
and coloured with distress inks to tone with the strip of paper.

Placed these onto the card front and proceeded to cut two of the decorative swirls 
from ivory, layered and placed with 3D Foam Squares in the middle.
Stamped sentiment to middle (Creative Expressions) onto the oval die cut.
A total of 5 layers - bit of a record for me.

Finishing touch is my little flowers to centre and card corner.
Lots of pearls added to flowers and around the swirl edge.
And LOOK...not a piece of mirror card in sight! 

Sweetheart Swirl is available on the website as pre-loved here
so it's a nice price.

Take care friends, have a great Saturday and please look out for 
my next YouTube video tomorrow afternoon - I may be on time this week!
