This weekend my partner Casey issued me a challenge. He said if I could come up with three cards all on my own he would buy me one thing I really wanted from Stampin' Up!. The big challenge for me was creating a card without looking at anyone's card or sketch as inspiration. The card had to come completely from me.
Below is the first of three cards I was able to create all on my own. This means I completed my challenge and now get to pick something for him to buy me. I am going back and forth between the Bow Die and the Circle framelits. Maybe I will get Stampin' Up's Typeset Alphabet Bigz die... Who knows, I will have to find out if there is a limit to what I can spend.
I think I will be submitting this card as another card in Friday Mashup's challenge.
In order to get the white sentiment punched smaller than the original size I punched the sentiment and then stuck each side back in, one at a time and punched each edge again.
