The NSD Challenge #4 over at My Pink Stamper's blog is "I Like You the Least." Want to guess what that challenge means??? The idea was to use your least favorite or least used cartridge. This was another hard one for me as I have over 40 cartridges but due to work and other obligations I haven't really had a chance to use most of my cartridges...some I've only used once or twice and some I haven't used yet as they are still new and I haven't had a chance to play yet. Today is definitely a good day to start. :-)
So, for this challenge, I decided to use Accent Essentials for 2 reasons: (1) I've never used the cartridge and (2) I never seem inspired by the cuts on the cartridge. I kept my card pretty basic.
DCWV paper at 3 3/4" x 5". The strip of paper down the middle is cut at 1" x 5". The flower is from page 77 of the Accent Essentials handbook and is cut at 3" using the shadow layer (white), base layer (yellow) and shift key (green). I decided to run the flower through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder before pop-dotting it onto the card. Then I added a bit of ribbon and punched the tag using an EK Success punch. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Sweet Occasions stamp set and is stamped in green ink using a Stampabilities ink pad.
Now, on to Challenge #5....
