WOJ #87 - Layers

Hello Friends~ WOW it's Wednesday already...the week is just flying by, isn't it?!  It's Whiff of Joy Challenge day!  Woo-Hoo!  Today our fun challenge for you is to USE LAYERS, you must use at least 4 layers on your card for this week's challenge!  I have actually used 5 layers on my card! :)
This is the first Christmas card of the year that I have made...thought I should kick it in gear, seeing how last year I ran out of time! lol!  This cutie is a Norma Fickle Gnome named Uru and Candy Cane.  Papers are from Memory Box Mistletoe Collection....these are all so gorgeous, such a wonderful array of Christmas papers! Edges of the layers have been distressed with my Distress-It-All and then blinged up with Diamond Stickles.
Miss. Uru has been Copics and accented with a white gel pen.  She was cut out and then popped up on top of a SB Labels 14.  The red dots on her dress were glitterized with the fabulous TonerTex Pen and Glitters. If you haven't gotten your TonerTex set yet what are you waiting for.....this pen is so amazing and makes adding glitter SO MUCH don't waste hardly any glitter.  I don't know about you but with regular glue and glitter I waste so much of the glitter.  :(  This product totally took care of that problem! :)  Plus the pen can be used with the fabulous Foils too!
The Poinsettia Flowers are from the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts!  Oh my goodness are these perfect for Christmas cards.  They come with a yellow stamen center, however I took my flowers apart and used my Twinklets to bling them up.  Then put them back together and used my Pearl Stamens in the center instead.
Here are the smaller two Poinsettias that been given the same treatment as the large one above!

I can't wait to see what you create with this week's challenge!  I'm off to school right now....get to learn more Accounting and then have my Advertising class today!  It's so nice have the 5 classes spread over 4 days....even though that means more driving to school.

One quick question before I leave.  I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't been adding the recipe to the end of my posts....I'm wondering how many people would like me to bring the recipe section back to my blog?  Does it help...or would you rather me just post the products in the post where the pictures are?  Thanks in advance for the feedback....I want to do what makes my readers happy! :)

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Gorgeous card Kim. Love the all the glitter and your coloring is awesome. I'm a fan of listing the recipe at the end but I know how time consuming that can be. I've actually got a poll going on right now on my blog asking the same type of question. Sometimes I do wonder about what paper, etc was used but I guess if I REALLY wanted to know I could ask in a comment or email you. :)

i'll be very interested in the feedback about your recipe listing. I switched over to doing just the recipe with a little bit about the design itself in a sort of intro, mainly because I lost track of what I was using. I'm very product focussed so always interested in what has been used. You're extraordinary in your detailed postings & they must take you hours to do. Your image is delightful & that panel it is mounted on works so well.

What a cute card! I love what you did with the poinsettias. I have been looking for a chunky glitter just like that. Thanks! I, for one, prefer a separate recipe section. I think it is easier to view when all products are listed together. You can still give the very helpful links, as you did in the body of the text. This card is all around wonderful!

OMGosh this is stunning, Kim! Okay those poinsettias are to die for...oh, I wish I saw these beauties when I placed my last order but I don' think they were there. I did what you said and stocked up on that fabulous glue that they have, since I did want it to freeze...thanks for that tip,Kim! I love the Stickles on the edges of the distressed papers that is a great idea and perfect for Christmas! Uru looks fab and your colouring is as gorgeous as ever!
