ATSM Challenge #119

Hi there everyone!

Over at Addicted to Stamps and More we are up to our CAS challenge.

I have created two cards today using a new designer's stamp. Shirley, now has her designs for sale through STAMPlorations.

Here are my cards -

Using the City Girl stamp for the first time, I decided to paper piece her coat with a newsprint type of DP. I decided to leave everything else very neutral.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Less Is More - Newsprint
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes (I didn't use the optional twist)

For this card, I stamped the Rosebud stamp and then masked the roses with a post-it note. Then I had an oval mask and stamped a background script stamp. I coloured the roses with a Spectrum Noir marker.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

CAS on Sunday - One Layer
