Quick note: I'm so excited! just found out I got honorable mention for my Papertrey Star Box seen in the post below - check it out on Nichole's blog!!!
Ok, back to earth now ----- This is a two-fer card today - it covers two challenges - the Split Coast CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge - and the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with some SCS friends (see my side bar for the team names!)
For the CAS challenge we had a sketch to follow . I made my front panel larger than the sketch but used the same number of layers. I stamped my Cornish Heritage Farms toy soldier right on the Cosmo Cricket designer paper. I stamped the sentiment from The Greeting Farm (it's on sale check it out!) on a piece of silver card stock and punched it with the Stampin Up Key Tag punch - looks just like a dog tag doesn't it!! The chain is from Michaels.
Anne (jdmommy) issued the Doubledog Dare challenge this week to make a kids card. I know my son always loved to play 'Army' when he was little - and when he grew up he signed up to serve! (thanks Josh!) I think this would be a fun birthday card for a young soldier! You are welcome to join in on the DDC challenges - just use the keyword DDC when you upload your card on Splite Coast - Beverly even created a Doubledog Dare challenge thread in the forums for us. You can see all the DDC cards here.
