TCPTuesday Challenge {anti-embellishements}

I'll keep this short and sweet. I have my TCP Blog Hop Post below.
 It's chuck full of all the New Release goodies.
 Please scroll down to see it. 

It is the last Tuesday of the month and I have one more card for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge. You still have time to play along, too. Make a card with no, or minimal embellishments.

 This month it's an Embellishment challenge. Well, actually an anti-embellishment challenge.

I know that I love me some embellishments. Twine, buttons, gems. And, I heavy up on these to make a card. And, that it what happens. The card gets really heavy. And bulky. And hard to mail. So this challenge is about using minimal embellishments. No more than two. And, none of the three items I mentioned above. No twine, buttons, or gems.

Here is a card I made for our middle guy. He won a special award at school a few weeks ago and I gave him this card to tell him how proud we are of him. The stamp set is Aim High

Since I couldn't use embellishments on my card, I gave it some WOW by using some Gold ink. I also added some fun Cloud Detail, thanks to the awesome Cloud Border cut ups

You can read all about it over on the TCPTuesday Challenge forum on SCS.
