Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge using Birdie Brown's Retro Girl 3

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! Hope everyone had a great weekend and that some of you might have had an extended one with the Presidents holiday on Monday.  Even with the extra day, it seems like the weekend always seems to go by way too fast!!!  I feel like I need an extra 12 hours a day to keep up with what I need to do! LOL  Anyways, on to the challenge....

So this week's challenge theme is "Lots of Layers"

Our wonderful sponsor for the week is Birdie Brown!

Here is my card...

So the adorable image I used is a digi by Birdie Brown called Retro Girl 3!  I love this cute girl.  In fact,  I love all of their Retro Girls.  They are too cute!  I colored her up with my copic markers as well as the skyscraper window scene which is from a La La Land Crafts Super Hero stamp set I've had for some time. I thought it would be fun to add this next to my Retro Girl so she could have a nice view while sipping her coffee! :)   The paper collection I used for the card is one of my favorites from Glitz called Cashmere Dame! I absolutely love Glitz paper and I love this collection.  I layered different papers from this collection on the body of the card as well as the borders on the top and bottom.  I edged all the papers with my distress ink in Frayed Burlap.  Also, for additional layering, I layered some Prima flowers with some  cute small rose buds from I Am Roses to the middles of the flowers. I sprayed these up with my Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold.  Finally, I don't think you can see it too well on the card but I did add an extra layer of my Retro Girl's scarf on top of the original one to give it some added dimension.  I stamped my sentiment with Memento ink in Black Tuxedo and also added some cute Candi dots using the Toy Box Collection on all four corners of my card.  

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store. 

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a fantastic rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by!
