Number of Years & Helping Me Grow - GDP#033

Today's card is for the Global Design Project Colour Challenge #033, and uses two different stamp
sets - Number of Years (bundle with die set) & Helping Me Grow. Water colour was my choice of colouring hoping that the Sahara Sand cardstock was light enough for the Calypso Coral colour to not be muddied. It worked!

There is one thing that I was not happy with, and that was getting my dies to stay in position even on the magnetic platform! Any tips or suggestions?

I think my grand-daughter will love these nautical colours!

I have two photos today to show the layering. One from each side.

In this next one you can see the overhanging layering better.

And as usual, the florals are stamped in Archival Basic Gray onto Whisper White in two corners, and water coloured. Love those Aqua Painters!

Thank  you so much for joining me today for a peek at this card. Be sure to see all the inspiration from the design team and participants at this week's GDP #033 Colour Challenge!

Once again a gorgeous card!
Try to fix the thinlits/framelits with washi tape. It's not too thick and you can remove it without demaging the paper. For me it works.
Happy crafting!
