The Challenge at The Friends of Speedy the Cat is to make a Fathers Day card this week. I started out trying to combine this challenge with the Stampin Bs challenge which is use 1 layer, 2 stamps and 3 colors plus neutrals. I stamped the truck and colored it with 3 colors, added the sentiment and hated it. It was just too plain. So trimmed it down, finished coloring it and added my layers and bling to finish the card. I am much happier with it now but I still needed a card for the other challenge. Over at Speedy TV there was a card posted which caught my eye last week. It was such an easy design technique and was perfect for the Stampin Bs challenge. So I have used the idea but changed it by not having a colored layer. I have 1 white card base layer, used 2 stamps from the new set Poppies Poppies Poppies from Marks Finest Papers and 3 colors plus black. I made a stamp pad with shades of blue and mustard to stamp the poppies.
