DRS Monday Challenge... Diorama Cards...

This card was made for the challenge over at the DRS Blog. It was to make a diorama card... they look tricky... but they are really easy to do and they get lots of ooohhs and aaahhs!
I used several shades of purple and the inner layer is pink. I used a nestie to make the opening and had to add some bling in the corners! I used the 3 flowers with butterfly stamp and cut the flowers out and added them to the pink layer.I painted them with SHIMMERZ and I thought the gem in the middle was just the right touch!I stamped the flower silhouette in the background and added the sentiment. For the front panel, I stamped the branch silhouette background stamp. If you would like to play along with the challenge... we would love to have you do that! Just go to the DRS Blog and be sure to link your card! Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, it does look very hard, that is why I have never tried one, or even lingered on the thought for more than a minute. But, yours turned out beautifully. I love all the purples. Makes me want to try it, I will take another glance at the tutorial and see.
