1. Color Throwdown #380: a color challenge requiring gray, red and white, which is my first time participating, and
2. Sunday Stamps Challenge #120: a sketch turned from portrait to landscape orientation:
I admire CAS cards but seem to struggle with the concept of Clean and Simple once I get started. When I make a landscape card I also prefer to have it open to the side because it will stand up better when displayed than a card that opens across the bottom edge.
Be sure to visit the CTD380 and SSC120 blogs and join in the challenges!
