Dies, Dies, and More Dies

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month). 

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was Maggie's turn. She challenged us to make a card using dies/punches but no stamps. I do have a lot of dies and punches, so you'd think this would be an easy challenge for me. Think again. EEK! I do love to color, so not using stamps (and my beloved Copics) made this quite challenging.

I do love a challenge!

It doesn't show up well, but the two stems of leaves are not the same color. The taller one is black and the one on the right is a dark green. I used the same two colors for the nesting die (behind the "Hello").

I hope Maggie, Barb, and the other Challenge Your Stash gals like my card.

What a great card Jeanette - the white shows up the dark colours beautifully, and the geometric design is a wonderful contrast to the organic shapes of the leaves.
Stay safe

It's beautiful, Jeanette! I'm doing a lot less stamping and more die cutting for the cards I send out these days!! Love the look!
