Card Recognition

I was inspired by the Do More With Less challenge with clear block stamping.  So I made another mini card set for the CAS-ual Friday challenge (these ones measure 3 1/2 by 3 1/2).  I struggle with one layer cards, but was inspired by Jen's scored border on this card.  Less Is More is having an anything goes challenge this week in attempts to reach 1000 entries.   I'm adopting this sentiment for the next 3 weeks while I try my hand at single parenting (DH is on an overseas trip), I'm sure I will have a lot more respect for those parents who did it on their own by the time he returns.

Materials: Paper Salon coffee cup, PTI Mat Stack 4 sentiment, Tim Holtz Distress Inks tumbled glass and faded jeans, Versafine black ink, Martha Stewart score pad, cream card stock
