WMSC #30 Celebrate!
Welcome! Today's card was made for Waltzingmouse's latest sketch challenge, #30. I went a completely different direction than I usually do for this challenge: CAS! I also tried paper piercing for the first time--if you look closely, the pattern in the sketch is paper pierced on to the 1 layer card. One layer! I can't believe I made a one layer card! The concept for this card was one of those that popped whole into my head the minute I saw the sketch, and I was a bit nervous trying to carry out my "vision." I even inked the flowers with two different colors on one stamp to try to get a varigated look, not something I'm real experienced at. But I'm happy with the results and happy that I ventured out of my comfort zone!
