OCC Challenge - 3 Layers

Hello and thanks for stopping by!! Today's card is for this week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our March host, Kim Teasdale, has challenged us to create a card using a maximum of three layers. Most of you know that this is quite the challenge for me!! LOL

For my card layout, instead of using cardstock, I got right to the good stuff! I used some of this gorgeous paper called Parisian Breeze Specialty by Stampin' Up! After cutting it to size, I used my ric rac scalloped pierceabilities from Cut At Home. This still allowed me two more layers, so I took my main image and used my square Nestabilities right in the center of my card.

The image is from the Blooming with Love by Stampin' Up! I just LOVE this stamp set and it is SO much fun to color!! To finish off the card, we were allowed to use one embellishment, so I decided on ribbon.

We hope you will join us in our weekend challenge, remember there is no time limit on our challenges. Please feel free to participate in any of our challenges at any time. To play along, just post your project to your blog or gallery, then include a link in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of the OCC post. If you upload to SCS, use keyword: OCCC.

Thanks again for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!!
