The challenge for this card was to design an Asian inspired card. This is my very first Asian inspired card! Asian is not really my style and I don't own many stamps in that style, so it definitely was a challenge for me. I also challenged myself to use up some of my Designer Paper scraps.
The challenge for this card was to use a retired stamp set. I have had this stamp set for a very long time and it was collecting dust. I challenged myself to make a masculine card. I don't know about you, but masculine cards are pretty difficult for me. I also managed to use another DP scrap.
The challenge for this card was to use formal colors: black, white, and silver or gold. No stamping was involved in this card. I used my craftrobo machine to cut out the silver overlay. I got the file from http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/index.php . If you have a cutting machine, this site is a must! They have many wonderful free templates available.
