Kiss The Cook ~ TSOC ~ Lots Of Layers

Good morning friends.  My mother was an excellent cook.  In fact, she was in her happy place when she was in the kitchen.  Unfortunately I did not inherit that trait.  I don't enjoy cooking.  I enjoy eating.  I have some leftover design paper from Bo Bunny called Kiss The cook and it was perfect for the new challenge starting over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  The theme is "Lots of Layers".  Have a look:

YUMMY, right?  I layered all those luscious patterns, using their pre-printed images for the focal point.  

Then I made some flowers using MFT's Layered Roses and Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals.  I was so sad when Top Dog Dies closed their doors.  I really liked their unique dies.  The greens are Cheery Lynn's Olive Branch.

I added a bit of distress ink to the edges of the cream star flowers.  Add a few stamen for the center and candy dots for the centers of the red flowers.  Done!

 Sweet and yummy and ready brighten someone's day.  

Now it's YOUR turn to play along.  You can find all the details at The Sisterhood of Crafters or by clicking here.  We look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

And here I can nearly smell the cherry pie on your card. Yummy!

Loving your yummy cards, all are fabulously designed, I have to admit I do like to cook and eat too and when I got married I didn't even know how to boil water , but 3 kids later I sure learned FAST lol!!

Such pretty cards! Papers are perfect for this challenge. I'm with you, Birgit - much rather be crafting than cooking! I am a good cook though, but don't want to spend any more time in the kitchen than I have to. Have a great rest of your week!
