Here is my very first challenge entry!

I spend so much time looking at various challenge blogs and swoon over the creations that people can come up with... but am often equally 'frightened' off by the sheer talent and the detail that some of those talents can go too... so I close my browser and dream on!

BUT! I have found my perfect challenge partner in 'Less Is More' - they promote clean simple lines where larger areas of plain colour or white are welcomed.  The results are more often than not... stunning!

The latest challenge is a One Layer Card - Off The Edge; whilst my entry is not stunning I am really pleased that I have even tried!

Card: Whisper White
Stamps: Penny Black (unknown) SU (Bring On The Cake)
Ink: StayzOn black; SU marker pens


  1. Gorgeous......can we vote on this challenge? you'd be a winner hands down.

  10. works really well! well done on entering a challenge - it can be daunting, but as long as you like your card don't be put off by cards you perceive as better. Some of those people who stick so much on would struggle to do a CAS card and you did this one great!

  11. Great card and a fun image - well done

  12. Oh this is great, lovely placement of the image and the sentiment.

  13. Your card is perfect for the challenge, love the girl coming in from the edge and it's coloured beautifully.
