...Simplicity (TSG47)

This week we are challenging you to simplify your stamping by creating a one layer card. You are allowed to have images that are popped up with dimensional on your card but no other layers/panels! Limit your embellishments to only one kind (but you can use multiple of that embellishment). So get out those stamps and enjoy some simplicity in your stamping this week.

I chose to use the little teddy bear and one of the sentiments from one of the new There She Goes sets called "Bear Hugs" for my sample. I used a Bashful Blue Cardstock base, then stamped the bear onto a piece of PTI White Cardstock in Black Ink. I colored the teddy bear to coordinate with the base, then colored in a little bit of a floor directly on the card base. I cut out the image, and popped it up off of the base using Dimensionals after adding some paper piercing around the edges on the front of the card. A piece of Black Striped Ribbon completed the card.

To be eligible for the giveaway,

you are to create a one layer card, then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Mar. 29). The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
