Paper Smooches Challenge-Sandra was distracted by something shiny

It appears that Sandra found something shiny and decided to use it on a card.  The result is a clean and simple card that turned out ultra nice.

Online Card Class Day 3

Today is Day 4 of the online Card Class Holiday Style.  There was one last card technique though from Day 3 that I wanted to try out.  I have always maintained that cardmaking is good for exercising one’s brain.  The experts say that doing Crossword puzzles can help ward off dementia and I think that doing cards like this must have the same effect.  It is a challenge to “fit” all the pieces onto the card in a shape and to do it with pleasing co-ordinating colours.  Add to that the challenge of stamping that many little images with no smudging or stamping errors and I think you have a fun and effective brain exercise.
