November Challenge

Oh wow! Can you believe it, November already!!! We have got some great cards created this year, haven't we!!!

Well, this month's challenge was certainly a challenge for some of us who are used to creating multi-layered cards!!! Oh boy!!! But we did it and we did an awesome job, I think!!!

The challenge this month is to create a ONE LAYER card using only brads, buttons, lace or ribbon as embellishments.

EDITED TO ADD:I forgot to add that I allowed the DT
to use one layer of patterned paper on TOP
of their cardstock base, if they wanted to.

You can do this as well, if it makes things easier :O)

Here are the design Team cards. You will be inspired, I am sure!!!


Leave a comment if you do our challenge!

*Remember, if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go in a draw for a prize at the end of NOVEMBER! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

THIS MONTH IS A RAK of assorted Christmas papers.

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them.You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a pic of them altogether. Thanks!


Enjoy! !!!!

Superb, every card!

Boy, this is gonna be a hard one, as evidenced by the number of DT cards that decidedly used more than ONE layer, lol! It's going to take quite a bit of thought on my part to create 5 cards; I think they'll all be the same this month!

Sorry I'm late girlies.

Here are my 3 cards created for this month's challenge.

I have to say that for me only using ONE layer was near impossible. Most of my cards are lumpy and bumpy.

Thanks for the challenge.

Great work everyone.

Luv Sandie
