Pile It On - No Patterned Paper

Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. It's been sunny here so we can't complain!

Today is a new challenge over on Pile It On! Challenges! And this week we want to see you create a project without using any patterned paper, that's right NO patterned paper. This was very hard, or should I say challenging for me! I didn't even use the Cuttlebug! I didn't even want to create my own patterned paper with dry embossing. I really wanted to challenge myself to make a card without ANY kind of patterned paper.

This week PIO is being sponsored by Digi Stamp Characters so the design team has incorporated these cute images into their samples this week.

This is my card using a cute little mouse with flowers image. I colored her with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen and a Spica glitter pen. I left my card very simple since I couldn't use patterned paper. I framed the image with rectangle Nesties and added some aqua/teal ribbon and a butterfly charm tied with black and white gingham ribbon. And there you have it, a black and white card with a little splash of color and no designer paper! LOL!

This card aslo meets the challenges for:
Cute Card Thursday: Tealy Good, use teal and red
Everybody Art Challenge: butterflies
Stamp Something: Charmed Somethings
Kaboodle Doodles: use a digital image

I hope you'll be up for a challenge and join in this week's Pile It On! challenge. Remember at Pile It On, you must use the current PIO challenge along with at least one other current challenge.

Have a great Sunday everyone! See you back here tomorrow with an all new Whimsy Challenge. Happy stamping! :)
