Inky Paws 100th Challenge!!!

Hey there everyone! I hope you have checked out the BIG 100th challenge over at Inky Paws. There are all kinds of prizes and fun going on.

 We are challenging you to go back and pick your favorite challenge from the past 6 years and play it again. Each of us designers did the same thing. Since I just started paying along at Inky Paws about a year and half ago, I decided to go way back and play along with a challenge that I did not have the opportunity to do.

I am a very CAS stamper, but usually have something that pops up on my cards, so I decided to Challenge 18 was the one to try.  One layer cards can be trickyyouthink there easy but not really. I went through about 6 cards just getting the embossing down then stamping seemed to be a problem.

Holy cow, what else could go wrong?!!? but finally I ended up with two cards I was happy with.

  Both cards use the frame and flag die set from Newton's Nook to embosss the frame. The flowers are Newton's Nook's "dainty daisies". The sentiments are from NN's "floral fringe" set. The kraft card I used my colored pencils. I love white pencils on the kraft cardstock. The daisies really sing. On my white card I went back to my comfort zone with my copics.

Here's the details: Choose your favorite challenge & play it again!

Oh no! Sorry these cards went through so many rounds but it was well worth it! I adore what you created! Both cards are stunning and feel like they have so much dimension you'd never know they were one layer!
