Look at all that layered tropical goodness...put together in such a fun and unique way!  I am excited to share the "story" behind this card, because there is one!  Hee.  I did something with this card that I have been wanting to do for a long time.  (So I love how that fits the challenge too so well!)

Do you have "crafting greats" that you admire so much?!  People where EVERYTHING you see of there's, you just swoon over?!  Well I do too!!!  And for this card...I CASE'd TWO of them!  I have received 2 cards that I just LOVE and wanted to recreate.  So for this challenge...I combined them both to make this one!  Here are those cards:

Aren't they both just SO stunning?!?!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  The one on the left is made by Lauren Alarid, aka Crafty Little Peach.  The one on the right is made by Melody Hyde, aka Hammond and Penny Cards.  So I am SO HAPPY that I finally took the time to copy these geniuses!

I just love that "window" with the layered goodness underneath...

I watercolored the background ayer with Coastal Cabana.  Then I sponged the tropcial leaves with Shaded Spruce & Granny Apple Green inks before stamping onto Shimmery White cardstock.  Then die-cut like crazy (also did some die-cuts with Vellum, Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, and Gold Foil) and layer it all together!

The background of the card, I embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  In real life, it helps the whole thing pop just a bit more:

And one last shot of this gorgeous layered-ness:

Total Swoon over this!  😍😍😍

Thank you so much for visiting!  I hope you have LOVED doing this challenge as much as I have.  And if you haven't started is never too late!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!!!
