Three Clovers Designs Thursday challenge - No layers!!

Hi everyone, and happy Thursday!! It's time for a new challenge from Kerry over at Three Clovers Designs. And this week, she has a really good challenge for you. I'm sure it will take most of you outside of your comfort zone. The challenge is to make a card with a single piece of cardstock for paper. That's it. No layers at ALL. You can use all the embellies you want, but just the one sheet of paper. Oh man, was this difficult to wrap my brain around. But you know what? It didn't turn out too awful bad. I must give kudos to GinaK heavy cardstock. At least it still looks good on the inside of the card cause none of the marker ink bled through the paper. The stamp is from SU colored with my Copic markers, and the the pearls are from Kaiser. I just used my paper piercer and made some designs around the outside edge of the card. (you can click on the picture to get a closer look at the card) Added a bow and that was it. So how about you? Are you up for a good challenge? Let's see what you can do with a single sheet of cardstock and some embellies. Please pop over to Three Clovers Designs to see what the rest of the fabulously talented Inspiration Team came up with. They were VERY creative in their use of a single sheet of paper. Unbelievable the talent those ladies have!! And then grab your sheet of cardstock and show us what you can do.

Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!!
