I'm very excited to announce a blog candy winner today before I show you a GORGEOUS card inspired by an equally gorgeous dress!
PAM you are the winner of yesterday's Hero Arts Stamp set! Please email Fran@SimonSaysStamp.com for your prize!

Recently, we saw this project on the wonderful Cheiron Brandon's blog and we just had to share it with you! To see her post on this project, just click here but I'll try my best to capture the talent and inspiration Cheiron shared today in our post!

I love this dress and all of it's yummy layers! You could draw out so many ideas from just the individual layers, let alone the whole garment! But Cheiron took on the Challenge of Luminous Layers over at the Moxie Fab World Blog and ended up making this amazing card!

You can see through the layering of the circles and the flower's extra punch of color what Cheiron was going for!

If you're lovin' this card as much as I am- we're lucky enough to have the recipe for it! Just scoop up these supplies and you'll be on your way to making your own Luminous Layers card!

And for those beautiful layers..

  7. You know I don't really know. I know I see tons of things blogging and looking at other folks creations. I can be just sitting, relaxing, and an idea pops in my head. Usually I just sit down at my craft desk, have an image that is colored, and I just start looking around the stamp room and supplies and an idea comes to my head, and I just start and as I'm working on my card, ideas just start coming, so I'm sure it's from a little bit of everything :O)

  76. Your precious moments deserved to be perceived more beautiful, when recalled again. Quality digital imaging is what that accelerates this feel, and the stuffs that Fuji has in place are all studded with these all. Something that is worth of appreciation is what RightGadgets.in is capable of generating, and the link at www.rightgadgets.in/it.asp?C=Fuji&it=Fuji-Camera&ct=2 is the desired link.
