I needed a quick thank you for the daycare worker so this is what I came up with.  Since I wasn't posting it, I went with lots of dimension.  The flower is actually got 4 layers with fun foam between each one to give it depth.

The challenge this week at MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends is to make a card with 7 layers.  At first I thought it would be hard because I tend to CAS-ish.  Have you ever read the book, "Ish" by Peter Reynolds?  That's my art.  CAS-ish.  I sometimes do one-layer.  I usually have only a few layers.  I usually don't do embellishments.  Ribbon is a bit scary, I don't know what to do with bulky embellishments but I break out of the modo often enough that CAS can't be described as totally my "thing."  The book basically about how art does not have to be exact replicas of real life, art is to be  enjoyed.  I love Peter Reynolds' books about creativity.

Anyways, back to the card,  I did the flower first and then realized I was going to have a hard time keeping it down to 7 layers when I had already used up four on the flower.  No layers for leaves now...  The pink around the die cut circle is sponged because I only had 3 layers left.  It was a bit funny at that point.  The sentiment stamp is actually straight but because it is an acrylic stamp, I was able to bend it on my block.  Love that we can do that!
