I designed a template for this month's Card Chain Challenge that was absolutely dastardly. Not on purpose, mind you, but that's what happened.
The template doesn't appear to be very devious when you first look at it, but it's really been a creative challenge for all of us, I think. I had some major difficulty trying to figure out what to do with it - and have since learned that others were scratching their heads over it, too. (However, I've seen some of the results, and they are smashing!)
Here's my take on the wretched thing:
Supplies: STAMPS: Hero Arts CL275; INKS: Memento, Versa Magic (to highlight the embossing), Copics; OTHER: Making Memories alphabet stickers; Recollections pearls; generic ribbon purchased at Michael's; pop-dots; TOOLS: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestie's, circle punches
This is just Wow Deborah!!!!

I love what you did with your sketch, Deborah! I wouldn't exactly call the sketch dastardly, but I did have trouble with it initially, too. But it looks like it was a good challenge for all of us.

Just wonderful Deborah. I struggled with the sketch and ended up using the theme!!! much easier but now I've seen some superb cards using it....

Great card, love the circles! I just ran out of time so didn't use the sketch as I played it safe with a circle nestie - thought the sketch was fine... thats the whole point of a 'challenge' right?
