I'm running behind this morning. I can't believe that as excited as I was about this challenge, I nearly forgot today was the 1st!!!

CAKath 10-01-2013 07:35 AM

Beate, I love this idea! What's so neat is it really forces us to keep it simple, but make it beautiful. Stamp from the heart, ladies. It doesn't have to have 10 layers to be special. Let's see how everyone approaches this one. Can't wait to see.

LuvLee 10-01-2013 07:50 AM

This was not easy for me.....but I made a one layer card with just a couple of die cut embellishments.....but I do so love that I get challenged out of my box!

Here's my Pink Passion . I have two tried and trusted go-tos for OLC cards, but I threw them away for this challenge :D. Thanks, Beate!

Oops, something is wrong, I posted the wrong pic. Be right back

Ok, lets see if I put the right card here now! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=241587

I had to laugh at the description because even with no lumps I don't think I've been described as flat since the 7th grade!!! All kidding aside....no lumps is an exciting thing these days since so many that I know, including my mom, have found lumps.
I used today's colors to rock'n roll a flat card. I'm sorry-I added a layer of framing because it just seemed to need a little more color along the edge.

Even if you do not find lumps, please don't forget to do your yearly mammograms! I did not find my cancer with self exams because my breast tissue is so dense. Thank goodness it was caught early!

Anyway, I really had trouble with this challenge, I am not too good on the CAS cards. I think my cards always look like a little kid did them. I had that feeling on the punched out flower one but was a lot happier with the rose one but that may have had something to do with being able to color with my markers!

Love these challenges!
