Hi! Hope your Monday is going great!
Today's card was intended for my Friday Flashback feature with one small glitch - I made it on Saturday! I used a stamp set that deserves to be in the spotlight even though I have not used it in awhile - that's Fifth Ave Floral PLUS an old fav of mine, Baroque Motifs. I began this feature to encourage myself and all of us to dust off those horded supplies and give them a new look, and you'll find many samples HERE.
I was inspired to try an interesting challenge that I found at Our Creative Corner called a 1-2-3-4 Challenge. We're asked to use:
1 patterned paper
2 layers not including the card base
3 different stamp images
4 non-paper embellishments
Math and creativity don't mix too well with me, but even though I had to plan it out, I did enjoy the challenge! Here's today's card.
Keeping the layers and embellishments to a minimum was a trick and I wasn't quite sure how to count them but I figured this way - 1 piece of hardware + one ribbon + 2 pearls = 4.
ETA: I've made some changes to the original card posted. To be more in keeping with the two layers, I added a strip of DP as a mat to the main panel. I like it much better this way! I also played along with the fabulous Celebrity Color Challenge at PPA83.
I want to say a big thank you for visiting and as always I'd love to hear from you! If you have time, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
