ABC Challenge - "L is for Lots of Layers"

Good Morning Crafters, well over at the ABC Challenge Blogspot we have reached L in our Alphabet of letters and this time we want to see "Lots of Layers" on your card, and we are lucky to be sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund.
and they are offering a fabulous prize of

And for my card I decided to use this sweet Magnolia Image.

I actually made this card for twins that I am very close to, their names are Lily and Lucy and they are now 5 years old, they are the daughters of the breeder of our gorgeous Yorkie Missy and they adore her when she goes to visit and Missy loves them to.
Anyway I stamped this Gemini Magnolia image onto a piece of white card for the first layer and I coloured them with my copic pens, afterwards I stamped it again twice more on the same paper that you can see in the background from Trimcraft its "Me to You" paper pad, and I paper pieced them to look alike. I then cut them out with my Nestabilitie Die and layered it up on a Fancy one.
I used the papers again to create my card and I used a Tonic border punch for the middle strip, in the corners I have used Die-namics corner die and on top I have placed the violet sprays in three of the corners. To finish of I have placed a banner Sentiment in the bottom left hand corner a Die-namics Die.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "L is for Lots of Layers" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
