3 Challenges, 1 Difficult Card
This shouldn't have been as hard as it turned out to be, but I guess that is because I committed myself to a path and wasn't going to move from it. It all started with my choice to use several shades of Bazzill green cardstock for the card. You see, the current ODBD challenge ODBDSLC17 is a monochromatic color challenge to use either yellow, green or blue or you could use all three. I should have gone with that option! Anyway, I also wanted to use my new Fern & Fiddles stamp set from Flourishes that I won last week for the card so green it was. The 2nd challenge element is provided by FTTC71: to use embossing on your card. And for the last challenge, Waltzingmouse Stamp sketch challenge #2, WMSC2, to use this lovely sketch:
So, I stamped and embossed and stamped and embossed some more, but still was not satisfied. I put it down to my cardstock choice (see above). Bazzill is great cardstock, but not the best choice for stamping. Live and learn. And so there it is: 3 challenges; 1 difficult card! Thanks for taking a peek!
