Dilly Beans Layers (meaning "Pop it Up") Challenge

Oh yeah!  The Dilly Beans Challenge this week was made for me.  Megan asked us to layer and "pop it up".  You know, use "pop dots" (or whatever) to give some dimension.  That's pretty much my FAVE thing to do but, of course, choosing the image was the hard part.  Megan's been a busy gal and there are tons of new images in the SHOP so why not go have a look?  After much debate, I finally decided on #425 3 Penguins.  (Too cute!)  I printed them a bazillion times, colored and fussy cut up a storm.  Because they were sort of floating out there (and the fact that I'd cut the image so close I couldn't find the right size Nestie to frame it), I tore some cardstock and embossed it with Merry Christmas, added some Stickles and there ya go, instant snow.

Second hardest part was deciding on mat paper.  Would you believe I cut 6 of them before deciding on this one?  I wanted to keep the color scheme but didn't want to detract from the images.  What do you think?  The frame was cut with Labels Twenty Three and you'll be seeing a lot more of it when I start using up my rejects.  LOL  Simple embellies, just a fabric covered button and some twine.  Wait 'til you see what my teamies have in store.  Fabulous!  Take a look HERE (in a little bit, I often jump the gun) and please come play along.
