My 1st TGF Challenge

The challenge this week at The Greeting Farm is to use NO layers.
I liked the idea of challenging myself to use only no layer, so I did!!
And here it is:
Of course, I had to use Grad Ian, in honor of Landon's KG graduation!!
He loves "his" card!! I sure hope the girls at TGF do as well!!

I must admit although the NO layer challenge was fun, Adding the Crystal effects in the abundance I did, sure weighed the card down. Maybe next time I will use a bit less!!
I used a black marker to draw lines on the side of Ian to imply a frame (or tiny layer) , the ribbon finishes the "frame". The crop-a-dile was used to make the embossed dots on the top and bottom of the card. I then used a paint brush to create a background using Stampin' Up! Inks Soft Sky and Basic Black!!
Congratulations was stamped with Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Set "Congrats"!
This was fun!!!
