Decoupage with Julia Spiri at CRAFTY CATZ

Happy 1st April to you all and no this isnt a April Fools joke. However it is details of this weeks new challenge at CRAFTY CATZ.
This week we are doing a Technique challenge
Which means layers in my book. Although there are 2 different styles both have been used by the team for your inspiration.This was my very first venture into Card making way back before I found rubber & digital stamping.
We are sponsored this week by Julia Spiri
Prize is 2 images  from their store HERE
So now let me share with you my card using a image from our sponsor.
 and a side view showing the layers
The image i have used is called The Cake Hat and you can purchase it on its own Here or as part of a set of 4 from Here
I have printed the image 3 times and coloured with my promarkers. then cut out different layer of each to give a 3d effect. I have used Glue gel to give height although you could use foam pads.
I have used a birthday embossing folder and some DP from my Scrap box.
Embellished with Lace, Ribbon & Pearls.
The Birthday sentiment is a Whimsy Rubber Stamp
Well that is my card and hope you like.
