No Layer Challenge!

Hello All~hope you are having a fabulous weekend!!! This week Marie at The Greeting Farm is hosting a No Layers Challenge. OMG~I LOVE layers and it was so HARD for me to stamp directly onto the card. I picked TGF's adorable new Snuggle stamp that was released earlier this month and paired it with a Papertrey sentiment from the Mega Mixed Messages set. First I stamped the image and then placed the largest rectangle out of the Small Classic set and ran it through my Big Shot to create a faux embossed box around the image. I then colored it in with my all time favorite medium...COPICS. (A girl can NEVER have too many...I am slowly working on getting the entire set and am a little more than half way there...) Then I embellished with a small flower $ punch from Michaels with tiny black pearl centers, added some black pen work around the image to make it pop, and rounder the corners for a softer look. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak!
