I love playing about with layers, punches and dies, and its great to have a sketch that inspires you to create dimension without relying on flowers :) (though I love them too!). I saw this sketch on the FuzzyWuzzy challenge blog, and thought it was brilliant, though I cant enter this card, as the theme is animals. :) (note to self Alison, check the theme!) ;) lol.
I used Tilda with Wand (one of my favourite stamps), and hand-stitched the papers and beads. I used spellbinders dies and an MS punch. I have quite taken to die-cutting my image, but keeping bits outside the frame - its easy once you get the hang of it. :) Bling and charm from stash.
