MIM # 62

Hello everybody,
Gosh! good to be back home. But that means a lot work! Yes, today has been crazy. had to bring Charlie my puppy from Pet Motel, he has diarrohoea. Looks like he missed us a lot. Moreover, our town had thunderstorm yesterday and he did not cope well with other dogs barking. Then lots of washings, shopping for groceries, taking kids to music lessons and on the top of all this, I also had house inspection! So massive cleaning.ย  All done and dusted now. Have a headache now but atleast all work is done and Charlie is much better.
I had making cards for MIM #62, on my list to do for today. That was one of the reasons why I finished all my other jobs quickly and systematically. Time Mamagement aha! I found some time this afternoon to make my Make It Monday Challenge #62 – Step It Up, Layering. Check it out, Betsy has loads of information in the video. Will definitely be useful.

I picked this sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping blog because I could not play this sketch and it is one of my favourite sketch. I used this sketch as the base for my take on MIM.

Here is my take on the challenge.
ย This is the first one layer card.

Here is the second card where I added couple of layers.

The final card where I have added more layers and embellishments ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are all the three cards together

I wanted to keep it Clean and Simple yet steping up layers. I think I have achieved it ๐Ÿ™‚
I throughly enjoyed playing this challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks you so much for the challenge and also stopping by! See you soon.
