Now, on to today's card:
It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! Today Sharon wants us to go askew. Here's what she says:
May 21 - ssnotime140 - Gone Askew - Today's challenge is something I like to fall back on if I'm in a super hurry to make a card because it's just so easy -- place your focal image askew on your card -- no trying to center it or mat it perfectly -- just place it askew. I love this look and it just doesn't get any easier!!! I'm so anxious to see your askew creations!
I wanted to make an easy card so I started looking through my Crafty Secrets Summertime Journal Notes that I got from Sharon's store and ran across this image. It struck me immediately that it would work really well with my Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk paper, also from Sharon's store. This was a super easy and quick card to put together--just lots of layers and very simply stamped. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of patterned paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and a stamp from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages set. As they say, easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime140 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
