Challenge #18 with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog - Layer it Up

 Challenge #18 is all about get out that hoard of papers, inks, stamps, etc and use it up by creating a project and uploading to our Linky on the CHACB Blog....make sure to check out the rules HERE!!! I made a card using the last of an 8x8 Bohemian Bazaar Paper Pad...makes me sad to see that all that is left is the cardboard backing...but I will save it to use later, because I am a true blue hoarder.
 Prior to layering my layers of paper to my card base I first used Gelatos and Modeling Paste. I have fallen in love with Gelatos so I used a pink and teal on my card front. Once I had the color I liked I then used Modeling Past and a Honeycomb Stencil. 
Allow the Modeling Paste to dry and then layer the sentiment to the top of the card front. Add some amazing flowers and a pretty bow to the top. I actually made my flowers. 
I cut the roses using Tim Holtz Pinecone die with a piece of the pink metal sheet from A Little Bit of Dazzle, rolled them using tweezers to form. Once I had them formed I dry brushed some white paint to the edges and placed them to the top of the layered sentiment. 
I think enamel dots are just fun so I added a few here and there on my card front. Well, I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layers of goodness that I used from my hoard and can't wait to see what you create. Hugs Pammejo
