Little Miss Muffet: Patriotic Horse

Happy Thursday!

We have a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet today - Loads of Layers.  I used an image from the Snugly Giftables collection called Patriotic Horse.  I was waiting until a bit before July 4th to use this one, so this seemed like the perfect time.  This collection has lots of holiday images and is offered as a set for a reduced price.
The designer paper is Simple Stories "Summer Fresh"; it has a great color palette. The chevron pattern is part of one of the patterned papers in this paper pack.  {The majority of the patterns in the chevron are full sheets, so you could technically make this a patchwork pattern like this.}  I cut it out and layered it on red cardstock and then on the Navy base card.

My loads of layers is mostly in the image.  I printed the image twice and layered it to create some depth.  The flag in on the base layer.  It is blank so you can create your own flag.  I created an altered American flag.  I just drew it in with pencil first and then colored it in with Copic markers.  The star I cut out of the candle on the base image since I would be covering it.

The candles, cowboy hat and flag pole are on the next layer, although all pieced on the base image separately.  The third and last layer is the horse, which I popped.

So, I have 3 layers on the base card {not counting the ribbon and button - do they count?} and 3 more layers on the image.
