OCC Challenge - Four Layers & No DP

Dawn Easton is our hostess with the mostess this month for the Our Creative Corner Challenges, and this week she's challenging everyone to make a card with a maximum of four layers and no DP.

You're all welcome to play along in the challenge. Just make a card and post a comment on the OCC blog with a link to your project. If you're uploading to SCS, please remember to use keywords OCCC.

My card base is 4.25" x 5.5". The main image is colored with Copic markers (numbers are noted below). I added orange Stickles to the pumpkins, and platinum Stickles to the leaf. The white main image panel is up on a layer of dimensionals and the orange scallop rectangle is up on a separate layer. I love dimensionals...especially when I have to limit layers. It makes it puffy and gives it the feel of being a thicker card. I added another small pumpkin on the inside of the card, stamped in the lower left corner.

RECIPE~
Stamps: SU Autumn Harvest, MFT Essential Sentiments
Paper: Papertrey Select White, Basic Black, Prismatics Textured Orange
Ink: Adirondak Black
Copics: B60 Pale Blue Gray for halo effect; W3 Warm Gray and W7 Warm Grey for the shadow underneath the images; YR00 Powder Pink, YR04 Chrome Orange and YR68 Orange for the Pumpkins; E33 Sand and E35 Chamois for the Leaf
Accessories: Plaid Ribbon from Michael's, Dimensionals, Rectangle and Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities, Orange and Platinum Stickles
Technique: Dry Embossing


Happy Saturday!
