One stamp, multiple layers

I missed some of the 2014 PTI MIM challenges so it's great that this week you can pick any of them. I decided on the second one of the year: Multi-layer images from a single stamp.  Years ago this was very popular, especially with certain company's stamps.  It was fun to use that technique again.  I don't have many PTI stamps that would work, but this one from Lovely Layers was perfect.  My inks are PTI Simply Chartreuse, Canyon Clay, Harvest Gold & Hawaiian Shores. The sentiment from Boutique Borders: Birthday is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia.  The mat is kraft cardstock die cut with Spellbinders Lacey Square. The dies from Turning a New Leaf are cut from cardstock & vellum & are stamped in Simply Chartreuse.  Partial embossing of a Cuttlebug folder adds a bit of texture to the card front & Stickles gives some sparkle.  I'm also entering Seize the Birthday.
I'm having trouble catching up after working extra days, but I'll get to your blogs soon.  Thanks for taking time to stop by.
