MCT ~ Designer Challenge

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! I promise not to keep you all too long today.  Miss Cassandra, from Creating With Color, will be hosting this Designer Challenge over at Emma's blog ~ My Creative Time. If you know anything about Cassandra she is ALL about color ~ so it's a COLOR challenge! YEAH! Create a project of your choice using any 3 of the following 6 colors of the rainbow ~ Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue or Purple. For a more difficult challenge if you dare ~ use ALL six colors. You can click here to see all the design teams FABULOUS creations!
 
For my card today I wanted to keep it clean and simple, something I seem to struggle with! I was inspired by one of my fellow design team sisters, Miss Nikki ( you can see her post here) on one of her cards from the last release. She used the "Treat Slider Box" ~ (PRE-ORDER ONLY ITEM ~ LOVE this die) for a shaped card! I thought that was so cool ~ so I had to give it a try. I took a thinner card stock and folded it in half and ran it through my Big Shot.  Then die cut it out again 2 more times so I can have the feel of a thicker card. I love my PTI paper too much not to use it! I just adhered them to the thinner card base. Can't even tell I did all that to this simple card. I then pulled out my "Stitched Button Dies" and used the CUTE flower buttons. I like to have my buttons thick, so I used a cereal box for some chipboard. My Xyron is always at arms length and totally perfect for adhering chipboard and paper together! My hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique was the perfect touch for these cute flower buttons.  My sentiment is from the stamp set "More Of My Favorite Sayings" . I seem to like to clear emboss my sentiments lately ~ gives it a cool feel and look! Not that you can see or feel it ~ sorry.
 
That's it! Simple right! I am a tad shocked at myself ~ there isn't even ribbon on my card! WOW this might be the first time ever this has happened! LOL!
 
We hope you can join us for this challenge ~ Thanks Cassandra for hosting this FUN and COLORFUL challenge!

  11. Okay, miss Kim, you have definitely mastered the CAS card! This is ADORABLE!!! How clever to use the thin cardstock first and then layer it! I was wondering how you did that! Your rainbow flowers are so pretty!!!
