Layers at Try It On Tuesday

The new theme at Try It On Tuesday is 'Lots of Layers' - as you will see here the Design Team have made their layers in a variety of ways.
My card is made of layers of fabric, lace and paper but is still light enough and flat enough to go through the post.
 I started by using a stencil and Stormy Sky DI and randomly stamped some text.

I stamped a couple of grasses from an Artistic Stamper set on to a square of muslin.
My fabric and paper was layered before hand sewing - a little crooked I see now although it doesn't look so bad IRL! I decided that it would look nice layered on top of a fancy die cut but when I checked it didn't show much...  

..no matter, I just cut the die cut in half as I knew the dips wouldn't show when stuck down

I cut out two colours of the Happy Birthday sentiment and slightly offset the top layers that it showed up more.

I hope you will show us your layers in this new challenge.

Thanks for looking, Chris

WOW, Chris, this is an incredible layered card. I like how you used two different colors for the sentiment, because they show up so much better. And of course, I admire your hand sewing, too. It is a wonderful card.
