This first card was made for the Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoasters - to use 2 different Nesties, Spellbinders, etc., shapes on the card. I wanted to keep it very simple, so I used the sponging technique & reverse masked the shapes onto the white cardstock before stamping my image from the Merci set by Stampin' Up. I then ran it through the swiss dots embossing folder with my Cuttlebug. Only 2 layers - Voila !

I followed the Technique Lovers Challenger for yesterday for this card - Very Vintage. (MAYBE my favorite style?) The image was stamped on cream cardstock, as was the sentiment, in chocolate. I then distressed the edges & sponged around them with cocoa. I liked the contrast between the swirly corner punch and the straight lines of the Parisian Summer paper. I especially love this crocheted cream trim. I'm running low, so will have to stock up on this. I like the dark Forest base, too. Think it's the perfect complement.

Would love to hear what you think about any of the cards you see.
Thanks for stopping by!
