Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #75 - No Patterned Paper



It's Thursday which means another Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday! Challenge #75 says NO patterned paper allowed! I nearly had a panic attack when I saw this! No designer paper with pretty color coordinated prints to help me with the creation of my card?! What was I going to do? So I thought back to what I used before I had a burgeoning stash of patterned paper and decided background stamps and dry embossing were the way to go. My image is Goldilocks Honey from Sassy Studio Designs' Fairy Tale collection. Isn't she sweet (and sassy)?! I used the "fancy" version of this week's priscillastyles Midnight Madness sketch (MMSC106) as my starting point and went from there. I have to say, it was kind of refreshing to go without the designer paper for once. Not that I'll make a habit of this, of course... lol But it's nice to know I can still do it!

If you'd like to play along for your chance to win two Sassy Studio Designs images of your choice, all you have to do is link your project here before next Wednesday evening. We will also be using the DTBST challenges to select our monthly guest designers going forward. If you would like to be considered simply use a SSD image to create your project and add "GDT" after your name when you link it. The winner will be chosen after the completion of the 3rd weekly challenge. We hope to see lots of you participating! Happy crafting!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing day!
