VLVFeb02 Challenge Card - Better late than Never!!

Happy Friday everyone!
Wow - do these weeks ever fly by!! Well, here is last weeks Viva La Verve second February challenge - and better late than never I guess! The *twist* this week was to not use designer/scrapbook paper! Oh, that was a little more challenging than I had realised! Having gotten so used to using the beautiful array of papers out there, I had to put my brain into action and this is what came out! All I can say is thank goodness for the cuttlebug, lol!!
The stamp I've used is a new release from The Stamp Barn - watch this space as I will be adding more samples of their new releases in the coming week. This particular one is from a set 'Meadow Grasses' - they're just beautiful!
Everything here is pretty straight forward - I used paper piercing to add detail to the background, but yet still keeping the card crisp and clean. Not using dp has actually made me appreciate the crisp, clean lines that can be created and yet still produce a beautiful card!
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you come back to check in for the other Stamp Barn releases - they'll be worth it!
Enjoy your Friday whatever you're doing!
