Sentimental Sundays #190

Since today is Sunday, I'd like to invite you to our new challenge at

Sponsoring this week we have:

The theme we'd like to see you play with this week is
More Than 3 Layers
This is so appropriate for those of us here in central Indiana....we're all about layering it up right now.  Layers of clothes, layers of blankets, and layers of snow. This month is only 2/3 over and already we've had almost 23 inches.  ~~We average around 9 inches of snow for January.~~  In fact, it's snowing as I type this post and this was the view of our swimming pool while I made this card:

Buried under that snow, there really is a diving board.
We had about 11 inches of snow then....
from just one snow storm.

Needless to say, I'm really in the mood for some warm weather.
So I did the only thing I could do:  I worked with sunny colors.

That awesome image is "Helium" from Paper Pretties.
The sentiment is one of the 3 that are included with your purchase.
It's such a great value!  I loved coloring this adorable little guy with my ProMarkers.  He's definitely going to show up on some
Valentine's Day cards too.

The color scheme of the card was inspired by that great striped ribbon.  It's one that I picked up from the Michaels $1 ribbon bin.
The brads are Recollections.
The shimmery patterned paper is a Hambly Studio Screen Print from Paper Temptress.  It's called Little Circles.
All of the other items used to make this card are listed below.

You can find this card in the following challenges:
Di's Digi Designs -- Spots and dots
