It's not easy!




It's not easy to complete a challenge where the sentiment is the focus.
It's not easy to avoid ink marks on a crisp clean one layer card.
It's not easy to ink your stamps with markers only in certain places.
It's not easy to line your stamps up even using your stamp-a-ma-jig.
It's not easy to stamp the last stamp without fear of messing up.
It's not easy to add a tiny amount of glitter with no smudges.
It's not easy to stop making cards for the less is more challenge blog.
Thanks Chrissie and Mandi for not making it easy!

Materials Used
All Stampin' Up! supplies unless stated otherwise

Card: Whisper White card stock

It's not easy - but you did it! And what a gorgeous card it is. Love the occasional colour change.
Were you holding your breath the whole time you were stamping?? :D)

I absolutely love what you've done here. It's a scary thing to stamp repeatedly directly onto the card base but, my goodness, you've proved that it's worth it!

Love this card! it's perfect for the challenge and yes you set yourself quite a hard task but made it look easy, as it turned out brilliantly.
Bet you breathed a sigh of relief once you'd finished and it had no imperfections....(that would be then be the time I stand back to admire it and then knock my coffee cup over it!!!)
