Frozey is So Sorry

Here is my funny little 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card for the color challenge at Split Coast (use blush blossom, close to cocoa, ruby red) as well as the weekly Double Dare Challenge I do with a group of SCS friends. Joan Ervin was the hostess this week and her Double Dare Challenge was to do a 'simple' no layer card. Ha!! NOT SO SIMPLE to do a no layer card - try it!!!I used one of my fun new Doodle Factory guys (Frozey) - who makes me laugh just to look at him! and he really does look So Sorry - doesn't he??? To add a little something to the card - I embossed a frame around him with my Nestability die. I colored him with Stampin Up markers going over it again in certain areas to try and add a little depth to the 'no layers'!!


It is a funny little card - but I'm happy with it!

He's adorable! I think you did a great job on "no layers". I have yet to try it, but I bet it is a challenge! Great card!
