The Paper Players challenge #159 this week is a Clean and Simple (CAS), one layer card. Right up my alley! I did actually struggle a little bit trying to not add layers. Didn't think I would have that problem but I kept reaching for punches and scraps. Oops. :)
I created a card using My Favorite Things (MFT) stamp set, Serenity Now. I cut a rectangle using my Spellbinders dies on the front of the card. Underneath, I stamped the sentiment and water lily in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Stamped the main image on the inside of the card. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color my images.
On the inside, I have a handwritten note, "School starts tomorrow!" Thought that was a fun play on the deep breath. I know I'm ready for school to start again. :) The mommy I'm sending this to will appreciate the sentiment.
This is my first card challenge with Paper Players and I am super excited to start trying these out. I've always tried this privately but I think I'm ready to put myself out there. They look like so much fun and everyone's work is amazing!
Do you participate in challenges? Publicly or privately? Any you would recommend to me?
Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
