Stampotique outside the box challenge

It's time for a brand new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers blog but before I share my creation with you I want to take a moment to say Good-bye to Willy and Vikki and how much I will miss not seeing their fabulous designs for Stampotique Originals they will both be missed very much. It's been an honour to work along side these talented ladies. Good Luck with your new ventures.xxxxx

This week our hostess Val has challenged us to think outside the box.

Create something out of the normal for you and show us what you have come up with.

Remember, only one entry per person to be eligible for the $30 Stampotique gift certificate and use your Stampotique stamps.
Here is my card..
  Stamps used: Wee OwlTwigs 

What another fantastic challenge, thanks Val :o))

I kept my card very clean and simple, I am really starting to enjoy working in this style (it must have something to do with Stampotique sponsoring Less is More challenge blog this month!)

So that is one... outside the box! along with handwriting on the front of my card instead of using a computer generated sentiment or stamp.. something I've never tried before.. the Design Team have been very busy please pop over and see Outside the box  challenge.

Hope you can join us! Look out for Design Call news!

Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance.

    Hi Gez

    Just dropped by to say thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog. I've loved being GDT for Stampotique this month and shall be sad to go.

    I love this card, C&S is a bit of a struggle for me, but you've nailed it perfectly.

    beautiful card, love the owl!

  12. I love it - less is definitely more and you've proved it magnificently x

  13. Beautiful card Gez! Might just find time one day - we still haven't moved(should have been tomorrow!) Be in touch soon, Chrisxx

  14. Simple and so beautiful, Gez!

  15. That is just too cute! Love the little owl. Great idea to go for that clean less is more. That would be a major challenge for me also since I love the inky, grungy, look with lots of embellies.

    Beautiful job! TFS :)


  16. ha ha love your stern looking owl. How brave of you to actually write on the front of a card, my handwriting is hidden well out of sight - on the inside of the card.

  18. Loving the brilliance of this adorable card! Wow! That's your handwriting?? Awesome!! You should do that more often - very kewl!!! Val :)
