Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card - layers

Hello everyone how are you all? Still quite hectic here so time just seems to fly by......
Anyway todays post is about 2 things, 1st a new challenge over at Crafts & Me which our lovely Sara chose & its a fab one............
.....yep just add layers & layers & layers &................
My 2nd thing I want to tell you is that my fab hubster came up with an awesome idea for a light box & todays card tested it out.............. Now he brought me a new light box here as my light tent was just a faff on getting it out & setting it up & setting lights up.................urgh

So here is my card with the pics taken in my new light box all made by hubster ;0)
Love how this has turned sooooooooooo happy ;0)
This one below is taken in my light box although I have had to add brightness to it, not a lot but I did add some.
The light box is fab if you dont have much space etc, they are just not right for me & I'm not keen on the lighting that disperses from the my light studio I will be selling.

Okie dokie......bit of info on the card. Ok we have a resin 'Keyhole' in the centre of seam binding bow. We also have a resin 'Butterfly' frantaged up in Shabby Pink & attached a cream 'Tassel'. We also have a
 'Metal Trinket' with a 'Flower' added to the centre. I attached a 'Trinket Pin' to the image.

I added a doily from my stash & some burlap fabric under the image, also from my stash.

The image of course is by Hannah Lynn & is an older stamp called 'Frosted Rose' & I stamped her onto some fabulus stamping linen & coloured her with copics.
Colours used are........
E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
BG09, BG05, BG01, BG000
R85, R83, R81, RV10
YG97, YG95, YG93

This stamping linen is fab & you will be seeing more of this stuff ;0)
I added some gorgeous cream 'Organza Pouf Ribbon' up the side & seam binding on top. The clock die is a Marianne one. I also as always decorated the inside. Papers were distressed & inked with walnut ink.
