Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Have you ever worked with Layers on cards?  They can really make a card special!  For this card I am using products from the Tea Boutique Suite by Stampin Up®
As you can see by adding some layers and turning them just a bit it can add dimension and interest to any card!  Below you will find the card cuts, instructions, supply list and a link to a video with this card and one other from the same suite.
