Today's card was created for 3 separate challenges! Wow! I'll explain how it fits into the challenges at the end of my post.

This is a very simple card, but I think that's what makes it special. I started by creating a mask from some printer paper and die cutting a circle from the center. I laid it over my card base and used Washi tape to hold it in place on the top and bottom. I inked up my music background stamp with some gray ink and stamped through the circle to create the circle of music once the mask was removed. I stamped my sentiment and the Eiffel Tower directly on top of the circle in some black ink and then used a couple of Copics to add some gray shading to pieces of the tower. That was it! I love the simplicity!

I'm entering this into the Addicted to CAS challenge (music) because of the background piece. This week's Less Is More Challenge is a one layer card with something French. This definitely fits the bill! And the last challenge I'm entering is CASology (dizzy). Heights make me dizzy, so I think this fits that challenge as well!



  1. A brilliant and CAS make for the three challenges - good luck
