This challenge on SCS is one that I've always been a little reluctant to try. I figured it would be too hard to have to use only certain items, etc. Well, I did it, and this week's challenge (LSC134) isn't too hard, either!! It makes us limit our layers to 3-4. You're also supposed to limit embellishments, so hopefully my four brads aren't overboard! ;) This card also falls under the WT132 challenge again, using Basic Gray.
I decided to do some paper piercing to make the lines of the layers pop. I hope that it worked. Here's my up-close and personal shot of my paper piercing. Don't you just love that textured paper!?!?! It's funny all of the little things you notice in a picture that's this close. I noticed that the White paper has a little bit of frayed edges, and I was using my Tabletop Trimmer, so I'm not sure why. It's NOT SU! paper though, this is Papertrey's White paper that's a little heavier weight. I used it for the table-topper's at my sister's wedding. Anyway, I hope you like it and I'd love to hear what you think!!
