no embellishments??!!

I posted for the first time as a DT member of The Hybrid Chick on Wednesday. Please hop over and check out my project here if you are interested! =) On to my card today.

I made this card for the "No Embellishments" challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog.

It was very difficult to keep myself from adding any ribbon or buttons... This was a real challenge to me. Oh no! Does Flower Soft count as a type of embellishment? I hope not!!!

I again inked up Antoinette. She is just so delightful and fun to color! I also used sketch #87 from Sketch Saturday. The yummy patterned paper that I used is from My Mind's Eye's Be Loved collection.

That's all I have for today. Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
