New Your Scrapbook Place challenge

Back To Basics - There will be no layering, no matting, no embellishments, no heat embossing or dry embossing allowed on this card. You will create a Card only using White Card Front Base, Ink Pads and Rubber Stamps or digital stamps. It's a Basic Card. In Any Theme you would like to do. Please be creative.   
 Creative Bug Designs is offering as a prize of five digital images that some lucky person will win in a random drawing of all those that enter the YSBP challenge.

These cards are being entered into a challenge at CBD, more information on that at the bottom of this post. 

For the YSBP challenge, I really had a hard time with the Back to Basic thing. I wanted so much to put a few sparkles on my card. The image, Ginarth, from Creative But Designs just screams for sparkles. I love clean and simple cards, but I also like to put a spot or two of embellishment on them. 

The above card was my second card. I sponged Ginarth instead of coloring with pencils or pens.  The card below was my first attempt at a CAS card. I sponged in a sky and "grass" I didn't really like the adorable little dragon on a totally white background. I like the dragon in my first card better than the one on the card above. I used pencils and pens on her. 

Creative Bug Digital currently has their own challenge going on right now also.  The theme is Child's Play meaning a card meant for a child 0-18.  You can find out all the details you need for it here 

 I'm entering my cards in the CBD challenge, except, I don't have a little girl to send the card to. As I worked on it, it dawned on me that I could send it to a Cards 4 Troops program. I have started working with my SU enabler making C4T and I'm sure that there are some deployed personnel that have little girls that would enjoy this card. I just hope my card is nice enough.
